Optical sensing technology for remote composites applications

20 January 2014

Advanced Composite Structures Australia (ACS Australia), a leader in composites technology, and Smart Fibres Ltd, a company providing innovative optical fibre sensing technology, announce the signing of a Heads of Agreement that begins a cooperative relationship regarding the use of sensing technology in composites applications world-wide.

Andrew Gunnion, Operations and Sustainment Program Manager at ACS Australia, said: "With the increased use of composites in remote and critical applications such as off-shore wind turbine blades and oil & gas pipelines, the ability to monitor the health of the structure is proving to be of significant value for the end-user".

Leveraging the broad experience and global presence of both companies, this agreement will allow the composites community to take advantage of a unique service in a wide variety of markets and applications.
