Fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs) are critical tools in many different platforms; aircrafts, missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and ground vehicles all require advanced optical fiber navigation technology to ensure reliability and safety. Global Cable Technologies manufactures an array of products for such applications.

Our GyroSil® Rad-Hard PM (polarization-maintaining) optical fiber, with its pure silica core, provides the high performance needed in radiation environments. For applications where radiation is not a factor, our GyroSil PM Sensing Fibers feature 1550 nm and 840 nm polarization maintaining properties in reduced diameters. OFS also offers 80-µm erbium-doped fibers for use as a source in FOGs.
