Recent developments in low loss single mode optical fiber waveguides, semiconductor waveguide lasers and waveguide optical and electro-optical components have made a new class of rotational inertial frame references possible. This paper discusses the subclasses of possible fiber waveguide gyro configurations and reviews one approach which is under development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Signal detection and processing, error sources, expected physical and performance characteristics, and present development status are discussed. (Author)
