Virginia Company to Develop Sensors for US Navy Gas Turbines
Prime Research LC, a subsidiary of Prime Photonics LC, has received an award of nearly $2 million from the Naval Surface Warfare Center, based in West Bethesda, Md., to develop and manufacture fiber optic sensors for the US Navy. Under the program, the Blacksburg, Va., company will fabricate fiber optic pressure, flow, temperature and strain sensor systems to support the Navy's maintenance program for gas turbine engines on shipboard propulsion systems. Initially, the sensors will be developed for the Rolls Royce 501-K17/34 and General Electric LM2500 engines.
