Safe and cost-effective operation of a vessel demands
exact knowledge of the ship's design and awareness of the
operation risks and their consequences. One of the
challenges involved has been the lack of information to the
bridge about the actual load on the hull.
Historically this has been resolved relying on navigators'
judgment and experience, but with Light Structures'
technology it is possible to get live data via the SENSFIB
Navy™Hull Stress Monitoring solution.
SENSFIB Navy™ is especially suited for high speed vessels,
catamarans and composite hulls. The system reduces the risk
of accumulating damage during non-critical operations.
By monitoring the stress responses in the hull
structure during operations we can provide the navigators
with online information about the load margin, even for
novel hull designs and material choices. The same data is
stored and analyzed, and gives valuable input for
maintenance planning and fleet utilization.
Light Structures was founded in 2001 and is one of the
worlds leading suppliers of fiber optic hull and
structure monitoring systems. Our main office is
located in Oslo, Norway and solutions are sold trough
a dedicated net of partners and agents worldwide.
