Radhard Fiber-less Interferometric Optical Gyroscope
We propose a radical new approach for to the design, fabrication, and testing of a fiber-less Interferometric Optical Gyroscope (IOG) that is designed for Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing applications. A prototype will be fabricated that is then irradiated with 200 kev Gama radiation. Pre and post irradiation performance testing will give confidence that the environmental and radiation exposure requirements will be met in Phase II. We estimate that an order-of-magnitude better cost/size to performance ratio of IOG sensors and their corresponding assemblies can be achieved when compared to the conventional IFOG implementation.
