Report Date:



Interferometric fiber optic gyroscopes IFOGs have established themselves as one of the most sensitive methods for measuring angular rotation, and have gained wide commercial adoption for a variety of inertial guidance, beam pointing, and stabilization applications. The optoelectronic components used in these gyroscopes typically consist of discrete parts source, modulator, detector, etc. linked together using optical fiber. This collection of discrete parts adds to the size, weight, power, and cost SWaP-C for the overall IFOG system and decreases its ease of manufacturability. The Photonic Integrated Navigation-Grade Gyroscope PING program seeks to integrate these IFOG components ontoa chip-scale platform and to use the added functionality afforded by photonic integration to improve upon the performance of the entire system.
