About us

Light Structures AS was founded in 2001 and evolved as a spin-off from the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment. The company is enjoying a steady growth in the shipping and oil & gas markets and is today the world's leading provider of fiber optic hull stress and other structure monitoring systems.

Fiber optic monitoring solutions are gaining popularity in the oil and gas community due to the unrivaled performance and reliability. Light Structures' Hull Stress Monitoring system was the first fiber optic solution to enter the market and has proven itself through several years of operation onboard shuttle tankers and VLCCs.
