Current inertial navigation systems suffer from accumulated dead-reckoning errors and must rely on a variety of additional technologies, such as star trackers, Earth-based GPS, and Doppler, for absolute attitude and position determination. Fast light optical gyroscopes will significantly advance NASA guidance, navigation, and control capabilities.
