Compact Optical Inertial Tracking for Launch Vehicles, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Compact Optical Inertial Tracking for Launch Vehicles, Phase I
We propose a method for developing a miniature all-optical Inertial Navigation System. In an optical INS, the rotation sensitivity depends on the area enclosed by a circular optical path, so it is impossible to significantly reduce the size of a standard fiber optic gyroscope or ring laser gyroscope without sacrificing sensitivity.
