Fiber Optic Gyroscope

Fiber Optic Gyroscope Market Is Expected To Expand At A CAGR Of Around 6% By 2031


Since its inception in 1975, fiber optic gyroscope (FOG) has steadily improved in performance and manufacturing capacities.

Now a mainstream, high-volume manufactured product with performance approaching Ring Laser Gyros (RLG), FOGs offer many advantages over competing technologies in terms of reliability, cost, and complexity.

Widespread use of fiber optic gyroscopes in military applications such as missiles flight control, ground detection, and dynamic GPS tracking has made the defense industry one of the biggest end users of fiber optic gyroscopes.

Miniaturization is an ongoing trend in this space, with researchers from organizations such as Micro-Satellite Research Center, School of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and Zhejiang University focused on the same.

Competitive Landscape

The fiber optic gyroscope market has major players such as Honeywell International, Inc., Nedaero Components, Northrop Grumman Litef GmbH, and Optolink LLC, focusing on supplying fiber optic gyroscopes that are suitable for the aerospace and defense industry.

Growth dynamics of the aerospace and defense industry are likely to have a significant impact on the manufacturing strategies of market players and the competitive environment in the fiber optic gyroscope market over the coming years.

  • EMCORE Corporation introduced its EN-150 Inertial Measurement/Navigation Unit, which is highly suitable for dismounted soldiers and weaponry, platform stabilization, and unmanned aerial vehicles where is GPS is not available. It replaces Ring Laser Inertial Measurement Units (IMU) with smaller size and high-performance fiber optic gyroscope-based inertial measurement.
  • Another player in the fiber optic gyroscope market, KVH Industries, Inc., recently launched its new fiber-optic gyroscope-based IMU with a 25g accelerometer. This new IMU is designed for dynamic applications with high levels of shock, vibration, and acceleration. Furthermore, the company collaborated with VectorNav Technologies LLC, a provider of embedded navigation solution, to combine the reliability and precision of KVH’s fiber optic gyroscope-based IMUs with high-performance navigation systems by VectorNav to capitalize on a wide range of its industrial applications.
