August 27, 2018 (Dayton, OH) – Prime Photonics will exhibit and present at the 2018 Turbine Engine Technology Symposium (TETS). held Sept 10-13 in Dayton, Ohio. The TETS Symposium is a biennial forum where the United States' turbine engine community gathers to review and discuss the latest turbine engine technology advances. The Symposium draws an audience of approximately 1000 engineers, scientists, managers, and operational personnel from throughout the turbine engine community, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, NASA, DARPA, DOE, FAA, engine and aircraft manufacturers, material and component suppliers, and academia.

In the exhibit hall Prime Photonics will be exhibiting their FOCIS™-based integrated Blade Tip Timing/Non-Intrusive Stress Measurement System (NSMS) system product with a fully operating system (at booth #406). The FOCIS product is used to perform modal vibration and stress analysis on gas turbines, turbochargers and other bladed rotating equipment and is not only a great analysis tool for both synchronous and asynchronous vibrations, but can be operated to provide real-time analysis during equipment test operations.

At 2.30pm on Sept 12 in the “Turbine Engine Instrumentation Advances for More Effective R&D Testing” session, Prime Photonics CEO Steve Poland and Engineer Dr. Peng Liu will be providing an overview of the development of a FOCIS-based stall/surge detection system.
