The proposal will develop the key enabling component in a low cost, high precision inertial navigation system (< 0.10 degree accuracy, resolution). Low cost, higher precision and low weight/power (SWaP) optical inertial sensors have been identified in the NASA roadmap as important components that are needed for future NASA applications, including Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), Sounding Rocket and many other Autonomous missions. The Navigational and high-end tactical IMU market is an expanding market with a push for improved performance. This expansion will be driven by cost and size reduction. The proposed IOG technology will be the smallest volume IMU on the market today. It will enable new commercial and DoD applications including airborne PODs, Line of Sight stabilization, weapon designation, Interceptor technology, individual soldier navigation, battlefield management, turret stabilization, missiles, UAV, and AHARS.
