FBGS announces partnership with 4DSP

FBGS has announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with 4DSP LLC, a manufacturer of fibre optic strain, temperature and 3D shape sensing technology.

4DSP’s Fiber Optic Sensing System (FOSS) was developed in conjunction with NASA Dryden Flight Research Center. Although developed to serve the aerospace industry, applications in automotive, oil and gas, medical devices and wind energy have been established. This technology offers real-time knowledge of the behaviour of the component or entire structure, giving engineers the ability to optimise designs following FEA and other software tools used in the evaluation of new materials for longer, safer in-service life.

Hugo Mertens, CEO of FBGS says "Aligning with 4DSP gives our customers unique access to a cutting edge technology that perfectly complements our All Grating Fiber (AGF).
