Fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) systems use light to measure the angular velocity, or rotation rate, of an object. This enables navigation technology for aircraft, missiles, satellites, unmanned aerial vehicles, and ground vehicles.

Luxmux’s light sources can be integrated into a FOG for the purpose of inertial navigation, which requires a photonic sensor to provide consistent, accurate navigation and monitoring capabilities for a range of manned and unmanned applications.

Applications fiber optic gyroscopes

  1. The principle of a FOG requires a bright luminous intensity, which is prevalent in Luxmux SLEDs.

  2. Luxmux SLEDs mitigate the problems of backscattering.
