In industry, Optic Fiber Bragg Grating sensors are opening the door for all kinds of applications not feasible with conventional sensors.
This technology provides valuable data for the design and development of sailboats, but also for real time performance monitoring during races.
Measurements bring tangible and quantifiable benefits to the structure of boats: masts, foils, rudders, carbon cables…
How we proceed:
Analysis of the needs for measurement.
Design in close collaboration with architects and design engineers.
Setting up and carrying out of the measurement campaign.
Data analysis and reporting.
This cutting-edge technology allows us to pin point the levels of distortion in composite parts on board AC, Ultimes, Imocas, Maxi-Yachts...
We have partnered with Micron Optics Inc, an American company that is world leader in the field of measurement by optic fiber sensors (distortion, temperature, acceleration, displacement…).
Micron Optics provides its technology. We provide our expertise as far as integrating the technology on board is concerned, and offer turnkey measurement solutions.
