Paper Abstract

Networks of fiber optic sensors built into future structures will endow them with an effective nervous system. This will constitute a necessary step in the development of "intelligent or smart structures" that will be capable of detecting damage or sensing any deviation from some desired state. Potential applications include: damage assessment systems for aircraft and shape sensing for dynamic control of large space structures.
