In this thesis, the purpose is that theoretical, experimental and simulation environment are combined to observe and model the thermal sensitivity of a gyroscope which is operated by the principle of Sagnac effect. It is essential to enhance the knowledge and experience, and to gain ability to simulate for different thermal conditions for future developments of the advanced gyroscope technologies. This thesis investigates how external temperature change influences the performance of fiber optic gyroscopes, which are purchased in line with the possibilities, theoretically, experimentally and in simulation model. Thus, deviations in rotation rate errors are observed in the measurement of the performance parameters of the gyroscopes subjected to the tests at different thermal profiles. A model is created by supporting with theoretical values, and simulations are prepared in a computer environment.
