FBGS Technologies GmbH - a leading supplier of advanced fiber-optic sensing solutions and components based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) technology - has secured a single-digit million growth financing.
A demonstration project whereby FBGS’s draw-tower gratings (DTG®) have been embedded in a composite wing structure in a real production environment at a renowned aeronautical composite plant is presented in a recent Sensors publication. The results present strong evidence of the performance of these embedded optical strain sensors for structural health monitoring. The analysis of the fiber sensor measurements show a good consistency and correlation with other reference measurements. For more details, please click here.
