Abstract
Results are presented of long-term testing of the reliability and performance of fiber-optic sensors developed by the Advanced Fiberoptic Technologies Corporation. The performance tests, conducted in accordance with national reference standards, involved various subsystems including optical sources, cables, and sensors. The results show no degradation in the performance of optical sensors over a period of 7-8 years. The optical sensor systems tested exceeded the requirements of Mil-Specs tests. System accuracy of 0.02 percent F.S. over an extended period of time and sensitivity of 0.05 C were exhibited by the optical temperature-sensor systems operating over a wide ambient-temperature range.
