Abstract
SA Photonics is pleased to propose a program to develop a low cost navigation grade Fiber Optic Gyro development program. There has long been a desire to build a low cost fiber optic gyro using single mode fiber, but various noise sources have precluded this dream from being realized. The scientists at SA Photonics, utilizing their more than 30 combined years of navigation grade Fiber Optic Gyro development experience, have created simple innovative solutions for these noise terms that will finally achieve the long anticipated goal of a low cost navigation grade single mode fiber optic gyro. In Phase I, we will analyze and predict the performance of the proposed low-cost gyro and demonstrate experimentally our key enabling technologies.
