Paper Abstract

Acceptance of fiber optic position sensors in aerospace applications will be dependent on the ability to prove reliability of the critical components and full assemblies in the expected environment. Considerations include temperature extremes and cycling, shock, vibration, altitude, humidity, corrosion, etc. This paper will present results to date on testing of sensors under some of these environmental conditions and discuss areas of prime concern toward maturing fiber sensors to full flight qualification
