Inertial navigation performance of an interferometric fiber optic gyro has been demonstrated over extended environments. Bias uncertainty, angle random walk, scale factor and input axis alignment errors consistent with inertial navigation requirements have been achieved under static and dynamic conditions. The IFOG technology is shown to be visible for many inertial grade applications where high performance, low cost and high reliability are critical factors.
