Abstract:

The research and development proposed herein addresses a critical deficiency existing in the space radiation survivability of high precision interferometric fber optic gyros (IFOGs), specifically the non-availability of a small diameter (80 micron), radiation hardened, polarization maintaining, optical fiber suitable for application to meet or exceed the IFOG performance goals of the space tracking and surveillance system (STSS) program. The International Photonics Consultants (IPC) Corporation and the Nufern Corporation, intend to demonstrate a novel approach for rapidly developing an economical 1550 nm, 80 micron diameter, radiation hardened, polarization maintaining (PM), single mode (SM), pure-silica core (PSC) optical fiber for integration and application to next generation precision rate gyros. The PM fiber will be demonstrated to perform in space radiation environments identified for the space tracking and surveillance system (STSS).
