A fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG) is expected to be the next generation gyroscope for guidance and control, because of various advantages. We have been developing the FOG-Inertial Navigation and Guidance (ING) for M-V satellite launching rocket of the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS) since 1990. The FOG-ING consists of an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and an Central Processing Unit Assembly. At current status, the proto-flight model FOG-IMU is being actively developed. And the flight test of the FOG-ING was performed on February 20, 1993, aboard M-3SII-7 satellite launching rocket at the ISAS test facilities in Uchinoura, Japan. This paper presents the signal processing technologies of our FOG which are used for the above FOG-ING.
