Real-Time Fiber Optic Sensing System
Researchers at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center have developed a fiber optic sensing system (FOSS) technology that represents a major breakthrough in high-speed operational monitoring and sensing. The system is the Electronics Category Winner of the 2015 "Create the Future" Design Contest. Driven by ultra-efficient algorithms, FOSS can be used to determine in real time a variety of critical parameters, including strain, shape deformation, temperature, liquid level, and operational loads. This state-of-the-art sensor system delivers reliable measurements in the most demanding environments confronted by aerospace, automotive, and energy sectors.
