A fiber optic grating structural integrity measurement system is proposed. It has a sensor suite that combines multi-parameter fiber grating strain, temperature, humidity/moisture and UV sensors. These Blue Road Research embedded fiber grating sensors will be monitored in test composite coupons and their output linked to composite models developed by the University of Delaware so that the structural integrity of the test coupons may be determined.
