This text provides an overview of Interferometric Fibre Optic Gyros (IFOG), beginning with an historical review of IFOG development. It includes a fundamental exposition of basic principles and a discussion of devices and components. The book concludes with industry reports on state-of-the-art activity. With several chapters contributed by principal developers of this solid-state device, the result is a work which should serve as a useful resource for researchers, students and users of IFOGs. Key features include state-of-the-art industrial activity reports from British Aerospace, Hitachi, Japan Aviation Electronics, Litton Mitsubishi and Photonetics. The book includes tutorial material to promote basic understanding, as well as full coverage of advanced theoretical and practical aspects of IFOGs. Developments allowing for the upgrading of IFOGs from a sensitive laboratory interferometer to a practical rotation sensor are explained. The book also covers the integration of IFOGs with other sensors into complete systems, discusses alternative forms of IFOGs and presents devices, applications and projected future users.
