The results of the work conducted in the field of inertial-based altitude and navigation control systems were reported. A Resonant Micro Optic Gyro (RMOG) was predicted to achieve one degree/hour performance. A high quality waveguide was developed and had small loss of 0.1 dB/cm and gain in the range of 4.0 dB/cm. A waveguide laser powerful enough to drive an RMOG was fabricated.
