Fiber optic sensors are increasingly widespread and used sensors in many areas of industry and defence. Sensors using fiber Bragg gratings are very accurate sensors of strain and temperature. In this paper we deal with the selection of suitable materials and structures for the implementation of optical fibers with fiber Bragg gratings. The whole process has several key stages – evaluating of adhesives on textile samples, selection of a suitable textile thickness, and design of a multilayer structure of a textile block. The resulting textile block was developed and its basic functional parameters were verified.
