An overview is presented of fiber optic smart structure research at Rockwell for Fly-by-Light technology. The methods emphasize the use of radio frequency (rf) amplitude modulation of the optical intensity and detection of phase and amplitude of the rf signal transmitted through various optical fiber systems. Strain is transferred from metallic or composite structures to the embedded optical fibers.
