The MORPHEUS collaboration between Parker Aerospace and Oxsensis has successfully demonstrated the application of optical sensors for the measurement of Valve position, Fuel Pump pressure and Fuel Pump shaft speed. The MORPHEUS pressure switch technology will increase in the reliability of the fuel pump monitoring to reduce instances of erroneous fuel pump failure events. This drop-in replacement for the existing technology, with no change to aircraft configuration, is able to address existing issues on today’s aircraft fleet.

Oxsensis has developed AS9100D manufacturing infrastructure in its new facility Harwell in Oxfordshire to deliver its Aerospace and Power generation optical instrumentation products. [Read more]

Understanding the critical importance of in-flight fuel monitoring and continuously striving to advance aerospace technology, the Fluid Systems Division of Parker Aerospace has teamed with Oxsensis Ltd., the manufacturer of optical instrumentation used in harsh environments, to develop a unique optical-based system that will transform and simplify the next generation of aircraft fuel measurement systems. This new technology is expected to reduce installation time and maintenance costs with fewer components. [Read more]
5th IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Aerospace
04 July 2018
Oxsensis Ltd. attended the 5th IEEE International Workshop on Metrology for Aerospace in Rome (Italy) on 20-22/06/2018
Dr. Alberto Sposito presented a poster on “Optical pressure sensor for landing gear”, describing the working principle and the initial test results of a passive optical sensor, developed within the ASHLEY project for measuring very high pressure in the Oleo-strut shock-absorber of aircraft. Our internal verification tests demonstrated that our sensor prototype can survive and operate accurately and reliably up to 350 bar.
