Advanced Composite Structures Australia (ACS Australia), a leader in composites technology, and Smart Fibres Ltd., a company providing innovative optical fibre sensing technology, are pleased to announce the signing of a Heads of Agreement that begins a cooperative relationship regarding the use of sensing technology in composites applications world-wide.

Andrew Gunnion, Operations and Sustainment Program Manager at ACS Australia notes: "With the increased use of composites in remote and critical applications such as off-shore wind turbine blades and oil & gas pipelines, the ability to monitor the health of the structure is proving to be of significant value for the end-user". Leveraging the broad experience and global presence of both companies, this agreement will allow the composites community to take advantage of a unique service in a wide variety of markets and applications.
