The aerospace industry is subject to some of the most demanding conditions and requirements in modern engineering. Aircraft and spacecraft must operate safely and reliably in extreme temperatures, pressures, and dynamic environments. In order to achieve these goals, it is essential to monitor critical parameters such as temperature, strain, and vibration with high accuracy and reliability. Fiber optic sensing technology provides an ideal solution, offering unique advantages that can enhance the safety, performance, and efficiency of aerospace systems.

Key Advantages

Overheat Detection

FBG technology provides a reliable sensing solution for detecting hot air leakage in aircraft bleed air piping systems. FBG sensing fibers can be distributed throughout the aircraft and can sustain high levels of vibration and temperature. By utilizing advanced FBG techniques, we can inscribe and analyze more than 100 sensor points along a fiber, allowing us to measure individual and accurate temperatures every few centimeters. Together with our rugged, lightweight, and cost-effective FBG Interrogators, we provide a superior solution for measuring temperatures at multiple positions in an aircraft structure and the ability to trace trends and introduce smart alarm functions.



Embedded Health Monitoring

We partner with industry leading companies and organizations to sensorize carbon composite materials of engines and airframes to permanently monitor their condition over its full life-cycle. Once embedded as an artificial nervous system, they can detect structural damages or impact events during flight, while predicting useful maintenance cycles and overall lifetime of the smart structures.
