The paper describes the integration of pressure sensors into fiber composite in order to obtain flow sensing airfoils to be used in future aircrafts. First, the sensor design and working principle is described, followed by an embedding procedure for damage-free integration. Here the sensors are faced to stresses by vacuum and curing during the embedding process into fiber-reinforced plastic. The mechanical characteristics and the influence of external mechanical stresses on the integrated sensor are further investigated. Finally, a sensor design unsusceptible to external mechanical stresses parallel to the surface of the airfoil is proposed and verified by tensile stress tests.
