We report new experimental data for an all-fiber gyroscope with a noise density of 0.004(deg/h)2/Hz. This is compatible with the requirements for inertial navigation. Noise contributions from the coherent Rayleigh backscatter when a phase-modulation bias scheme is used and also from acoustic vibrations are discussed.
