We describe the theory, design, fabrication, and performance of a super fluid ^4He device which is the analog of the superconducting RF SQUID. This device is a sensitive rotation detector and is used to sense the rotation of the Earth. We also describe the experimental developments and observations which lead to the construction of this successful device.
