Fiber Sensing Helps Validate Viability of the PRSEUS Concept in General Aviation

Josiah Fee Mechanical Engineer Lightwave Division Composites are a vital part of today’s and tomorrow’s aircraft innovation. With their high strength-to-weight ratio compared with metals, composites have opened up the possibilities for a number of novel aircraft structural designs. One such design is the Pultruded Rod Stitched Efficient Unitized Structure (PRSEUS) concept. This involves using a stitched skin and stringer-and-frame carbon fiber preform design for…Read More

ODiSI-B Software Update

  Great news for new and existing ODiSI-B users! Toward the end of 2014, Luna released a major software update for the revolutionary ODiSI-B strain and temperature measurement platform. The ODiSI (Optical Distributed Sensor Interrogator) uses low cost optical fiber to provide high speed, fully distributed strain and temperature measurements. It saves time and costs while adding a new dimension to sensing measurements with its…Read More
