Paper Abstract

Accurate and fast strain measurements will be required by any resident sensing system to be used forSmart Adaptive Structures. We have developed a dual Fabry-Perot fiber optic strain sensor systemto be used with a controlled actuation structure in the form of a "Smartruss". This generic AdaptiveSmart Structure element will test many of the essential features of this technology and may serve asthe forerunner of systems that could be used for large flexible space structures or flexible roboticmanipulators.
