Parker Aerospace and Oxsensis Sign an Exclusive Aero Engine Agreement for Advanced Sensor Technology

Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE: PH), the global leader in motion and control technologies, and Oxsensis Ltd. are developing harsh environment instrumentation including static and dynamic pressure and temperature sensors for aerospace engine applications, based on innovative fiber optic sensor technologies. These include direct-mount sensors operating up to 1,800 °F that are already successfully deployed in land-based gas turbine systems.

Parker Aerospace and Oxsensis Ltd. have been collaborating to apply Oxsensis technology to Parker Aerospace instrumentation systems. Over the past four years, advancement of the new technology and subsequent prototypes by the two companies have yielded robust success, building on Parker’s system integration, aero-qualification and engineering expertise, and innovative Oxsensis optical sensor capabilities.

Oxsensis optical instrumentation addresses compressor, combustion, and turbine applications – operating at higher temperatures, non-electrically, and often in new locations. This extends engine capability and performance.

High-accuracy pressure sensor technology comes closer to market

“We are delighted that application of Oxsensis’ optical instrumentation technology is winning its way onto airframes, with the added prospect of product realization in advanced aerospace systems,” stated Oxsensis Chief Executive Officer Ian Macafee. “The developments are an extension of initial Oxsensis product deployments into gas turbines.”

Macafee added, “Oxsensis is in the vanguard of this exciting new fiber optic sensor technology, and it is particularly attractive in aircraft applications, with additional applications in the pipeline. We are proud to be working in partnership with Parker Aerospace to serve this demanding and important market.”

Parker Aerospace is in hall 5, stand #C210, at the Paris Air Show, June 19-25, 2017.
