The specification and test requirements for a single-axis laser gyro for use as a sensor in attitude control systems, angular displacement measuring systems, and angular rate measuring systems is defined. A standard specification format guide for the preparation of a single-axis laser gyro is provided. A complication of recommended procedures for testing a laser gyro, derived from those presently used in the industry, is also provided.

IEEE Standard Specification Format Guide and Test Procedure for Single-Axis Laser Gyros
This standard defines the requirements for a single-axis laser gyro to be used as a sensor in [an attitude control system, an angular displacement measuring system, an angular rate measuring system, ]. This includes the electronics necessary to operate the gyro and to condition the output signal.
