UTC Aerospace Systems Sheds Light On Temperature Measurement

UTC Aerospace Systems has obtained an exclusive license from Smart Fibres Ltd. to a fiber optic based technology for aircraft temperature sensing. The addition of this technology to the UTC Aerospace Systems portfolio supports the aerospace industry's growing need for more reliable, lightweight and easier-to-install sensing systems..

 

Aircraft overheat protection systems measure and monitor the temperature along aircraft bleed air ducts, control valves and in critical areas of the aircraft. Once implemented on aircraft, UTC Aerospace Systems' overheat protection systems based on fiber optic technology will be highly configurable, faster and easier for aircraft manufacturers to install, more reliable and lighter weight. They will also reduce the time for aircraft maintenance through more accurate fault location detection, and enable new uses for overheat detection systems, such as prognostic health management.
