Fiber Optic Sensing Systems for Launch Vehicles

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

AES in partnership with HEOMD's Launch Services Program and ARMD, plans to develop Fiber Optic Sensing System (FOSS) hardware for use with Launch Vehicle Systems.

AES participation in this project was completed at the end of FY 2015 (September 30, 2015).

The objective of the Fiber Optic Sensing System (FOSS) activity is to demonstrate its value to space flight applications with the intent that it could be utilized by the Space Launch System program to realize performance improvements in that system. FOSS technology has the potential to dramatically improve structural and system efficiency by providing unprecedented insight into the structural performance of a vehicle in an affordable manner.
