In this sector the "OF" System has been designed, manufactured and applied on all types of boats: sailing, motor, racing, cruising and commercial ships.
The primary objective is the safety and integrity of the element being monitored, in addition to its characterization and optimization.
The “OF” System allows to check the following:
- Hull structure, keel, rudder, mast, shrouds, rigging, sails, and more…;
- Hull structure, motors, and more…;
- Hull, cargo deck, tanks, motors, and more...
Measures that can be done are:
- Bending and torsion;
The possibility of inserting the optical fiber and its sensors inside composite materials makes the "OF" System highly demanded, in this sector, where these composite materials are commonly used, and where the characterization of the boats structures has ample margins of improvement.
