(“Opsens Solutions”), its wholly-owned subsidiary, is partnering with Temai Ingenieros S.L. (“Temai”) for the commissioning of an optical-based fuel monitoring system for a major aircraft manufacturer.
This agreement comes after over a year of development and ground testing of an aircraft fuel monitoring system based on Opsens Solutions’ fiber optic sensing technology. The aircraft manufacturer was very pleased with the performance of the system and has agreed to proceed with the next phase of testing, which consists of partial flight qualification. This fiber optic aircraft fuel monitoring system is first aimed at aerial refueling aircrafts, a very demanding application for this type of usage.
“Thanks to the outstanding performance of our recently developed and patented fiber-optic differential pressure sensor, the most precise of its kind on the market, we have been able to perform aircraft fuel measurement with a precision never seen before,” said Gaétan Duplain, President of Opsens Solutions.
“We are delighted with the results obtained during the ground-testing phase we performed in collaboration with Opsens Solutions’ products and we foresee a bright future for this type of technology in the aeronautics industry,” said Luis Bussion, Managing Director of Temai.
