Sensing technology under development
Friday, 24 January 2014

Advanced Composite Structures Australia (ACS) based in Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia has established a co-operation with Smart Fibres Ltd., of Bracknell, Bershire, UK, to co-develop the use of sensing technology in composites applications worldwide.

?With the increased use of composites in remote and critical applications such as off-shore wind turbine blades and oil and gas pipelines, the ability to monitor the health of the structure is proving to be of significant value for the end-user,? said Andrew Gunnion, Operations and Sustainment Programme Manager at ACS.

ACS Australia provides engineering products, services and technical expertise to companies looking for a competitive advantage in a variety of markets including aerospace, defence, automotive, renewable energy and oil and gas.
