Performance Vessels, Vehicles & Equipment


Racing requires top gear. Due to their small size, high resistance to fatigue and ultra-fast response time, FBGs are increasingly used for monitoring critical stress points and the dynamic reaction of novel composite materials and designs used in racing yachts, racing vehicles, and other state-of-the-art equipment such as bobsleds and skis for Olympic competitions. Whether surface-mounted or embedded directly into composite materials, our FBGs are used from design and qualification of racing parts to the structural health monitoring and precise feedback required for continuous design optimizations.
