Industry Applications

Opterro Provides the Gold Standard in Sensing Solutions

We believe in giving our customers the best possible solutions for their applications, which is why we offer unmatched performance for Fiber Bragg Grating, Fabry Perot Interferometry, Raman DTS, and Raleigh DAS.

Data Centers

Data acquisition using distributed sensing of temperature, vibration, and acoustic emission for real-time condition monitoring, diagnostics, and intelligent preventive maintenance.

Electric Utilities

Opterro’s distributed optical sensing systems and solutions can be used for electricity generators and electricity distribution from mainstream natural gas-fired, combined-cycle, combustion turbine, and steam turbine AC generators.


Ideal for extreme environments of semiconductor and solar manufacturing process equipment, various industrial furnaces, as well as environmental monitoring and control of semiconductor microelectronics and solar photovoltaics factories. With the use of our sensors, manufacturing can do prognostic health management (PHM), and conditional based maintenance (CBM) to predict the future health and performance of equipment and systems.

Smart Infrastructure

Ideal for Industrial Internet of Things sensors that are distributed over distances across buildings, cities and transport networks for the collection and analysis of data pertinent to reliable and efficient operations. Our sensing systems are also ideal for supporting the development of “Smart Cities.”

Renewable Energy

Fiber optic sensing provides real-time monitoring and data analysis that can improve the overall efficiency, safety, and longevity of renewable energy systems. It can be used to detect any vibrations or strains in the generator which can indicate potential issues such as cracking or damage. It is ideal for solar thermal operation and maintenance, solar photovoltaic operation and maintenance, wind turbine operation and maintenance, and geothermal operation and maintenance.

Research & Development

Opterro systems are well known in R&D centers of excellence across the world, including national labs and premiere research institutes, where some of the pioneering research is performed for anything with far-reaching applications across many existing and emerging industries, medical devices & wearables, and defense.

Medical Devices & Wearables

Single-point and distributed sensing systems can provide high-precision, real-time data that can be used to improve the effectiveness and accuracy of medical wearables and sports wearables. These sensors can be integrated into wearable devices, allowing for continuous monitoring of the user’s health.

Defense & Aerospace

Opterro has a track record of monitoring high-value assets in space, flight, and maritime environments, ranging from structural health monitoring (SHM) to attitude control. Our system can be used to improve the magnetic field sensor and electric field sensor to provide accurate information in defense and aerospace applications, such as threat detection, navigation and guidance, and explosive detection.

AgTech and Climate

Our distributed sensing solutions enable precision agriculture to maximize yield and efficiency. We provide monitoring of subsurface phenomena to ensure reliable, long-term carbon sequestration. Our sensing solution can enhance seismic measurement, pipeline monitoring, and others. This can help to improve crop yields, reduce water usage, lower costs, also prevent damage to natural resources and protect the environment.
