Smart structures

We embed sensors into composites structures to assess its performance in real time

Airtificial A&D has become the only European TIER 2 supplier able to develop smart structures, covering every stage from performance analysis to platform integration

Here at Airtificial A&D, we strongly believe that the future of critical structures lies in providing end users with real time information on the condition of these structures, removing the need for regular inspections and the even more dangerous possibility of a failure threatening structural health.

To this end, we implement Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG)nbetween the composite layers of the parts to be equipped with sensors, which means the smart structure concept is built right into the production process.

Once the sensors are embedded, they provide an array of data that are to be collected, entered, and ultimately interpreted using the structure’s digital twin.
