OPTICS11 is a leading global supplier of cutting-edge fiber optic sensing systems, providing unmatched performance in the most challenging environments. The company specializes in securing and protecting vital assets offshore, leveraging its innovative solutions and insights to transform data into action, allowing its customers to make informed, data-driven decisions that drive progress and improve the world around us.
OPTICS11 develops and supplies state-of-the-art fiber optic sensing systems for a range of applications, including underwater acoustics, non-destructive testing (NDT) research, and structural health monitoring (SHM) of critical infrastructure such as bridges, tunnels, and roads. Its portfolio includes state-of-the-art thin line array hydrophone solutions like OTADES, which provides unmatched precision in underwater acoustic systems.
The individual hydrophones in the OTADES array are smaller in diameter and use only light, while maintaining the same performance due to the use of patented fiber optic technologies. This innovative solution overcomes all challenges existing electric arrays face and enables faster deployment and increased operational uptime.
Application areas for OPTICS11 technology include submarines, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), geographic surveys, and sensor systems for monitoring underwater activity. OPTICS11 has been collaborating with the Defense industry for many years as the technology is very relevant for them. The company employs about 80 people at its location in Amsterdam, with a small R&D center located in Dublin (Ireland).
In addition, OPTICS11 offers the world’s only fiber optic acoustic emission sensing system to secure energy assets, as well as cutting-edge structural health monitoring solutions, all of which bring unique advantages to the defense industry requiring precise and reliable measurements. OPTICS11 is dedicated to empowering individuals and organizations in the defense industry with the tools they need to protect their assets in the most challenging environments.
Application areas for OPTICS11 technology include besides submarines, Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), geographic surveys and sensor systems for monitoring underwater activity. OPTICS11 is collaborating for many years with Defense, as in general the technology is very relevant for them.
