Temperature FBG sensors for Airbus

/ Project examples

IDIL Fibres Optiques developed FBG based temperature sensors for Airbus A380.

IDIL Fibres Optiques produced three (3) fibers equipped with thirteen (13) temperature FBG sensors based on Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) technology.

These temperature FBG sensors have been placed all around the aircraft in order to determine its security perimeter.
