Abstract
The continued demand for high performance military platforms with reduced operational cost and extended life cycle is driving the development of autonomous systems and subsystems, advanced signal processing, smart sensors, and new generation materials. Autonomous systems including autonomous structural health monitoring are expected to form an integral part of future military platforms. These systems heavily rely on an intelligent network of sensors for potentially reducing the high cost associated with platform ownership. Advanced sensor networks, including fibre optic sensors, are expected to significantly contribute to such effort. This document establishes progress made toward the development and application of fibre optic based sensor systems for military platforms. It identifies and documents activities and associated experiences within the Composites Technology and Performance Group of the Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP-MAT-TP7). The report that focuses on fibre optic smart structures, structural health monitoring, bonded patch repair monitoring, and composites process monitoring and manufacturing, provides recommendation on the way ahead for fibre optic smart structures development and implementation.
