Abstract : Comparative study of mechanical, ring laser and fibre optic gyroscopes has been made. The single mode fibre optic gyroscope having a large number of turns of the optical fibre in the spool, replacing He-Ne gas laser by a GaAs laser diode, thereby reducing the noise level, and using fully integrated fibre optic, works out to be the best in the analysis, for safe navigation and homing of the guided missiles.
