Lightweight, small and immune to EMI, optical fiber technology has gained widespread acceptance in A&D

Today, an ever-growing list of applications for specialty fiber is topped by Fiber Optic Gyroscopes (FOG), Avionics, LiDAR, Asset Monitoring, Sonar, and Perimeter Security.

The Aerospace and Defence (A&D) sectors were amongst the very first to embrace optical fiber technology. Originally this was for communications and now, increasingly for sensing. A broad spectrum of A&D applications use specialty optical fibers to enhance performance and reliability from fiber optic gyroscopes (FOGs), through hydrophones, geophones, phased array radar, avionics, perimeter, and asset security and LiDAR to inter-satellite communications.

Applications: Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG), Space Environments (Space qualified FOGs & Laser Communications), Embedded Sensors / Asset Monitoring, Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR), In-Flight Network and Entertainment Systems, Acoustic and Seismic Sensors, Perimeter and Border Security
