AOMS Technologies has commercialized over a decade of R&D in a world-class research institution to develop an unparalleled fiber optic sensor technology for harsh environment sensing where existing sensors fail or lose performance. We have invented a series of incredibly powerful technologies that changes the landscape of sensing in applications where accurate, high-fidelity, and reliable measurement of data is paramount. Our invention is based on seamless integration of high-purity optical glass and high grade alloys of conventional metals such as steel, nickel, and aluminum. At AOMS, we have the compulsion to develop products to resolve the challenges of the existing electronic-based sensors – i.e., susceptibility to electromagnetic noise, failure in harsh environmental conditions, high spatial density measurement, etc . AOMS provides premium sensing capabilities to a wide range of industry customers – energy, environmental services, clean technologies, structural health monitoring, automotive, aerospace, and defense. AOMS product is an end-to-end hardware-software platform compatible with many of the existing industry standards for system integration..


Richard obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s in Mechatronics Engineering from the University of Waterloo. He has several years of engineering work experience at Christie Digital Systems Inc., AMD, and Brock Solutions. He has the working experience in hardware, software, opto-mechanical systems, and mechatronic systems design and integration. AOMS innovation stems from Richard’s MASc thesis on the development of dual-parameter (pressure and temperature) fibre optic sensors for harsh environment applications in the Oil & Gas industry.
