Abstract

Honeywell and the University of Minnesota have made significant progress toward a feasible resonant microoptic gyro (RMOG) for an environmentally-rugged, inertial based attitude and navigation control system. Developments to date include a high quality trench waveguide with losses as little as 0.1 db/cm and gain in the 4.0 db/cm range, and a waveguide laser with nearly enough power to adequately drive an RMOG. Performance analysis predicts that a 1 degree/hr RMOG can be constructed.
