About Us

OSENSA Innovations Corp. has come a long way since its acquisition of a high-tech opto-mechanical design consulting company founded in 2002. Today OSENSA is recognized as a leading developer of customized fiber optic sensing products for industrial applications. OSENSA currently provides products and services to companies ranging from telecommunications suppliers to power generation manufacturers and medical equipment start-ups. Our technology has been applied to space applications, solar power generation, commercial lighting and homeland security. Recently, OSENSA focused its team of engineers on the development of a range of fiber optic sensing products intended to satisfy the growing demands of large equipment manufacturers. OSENSA’s industrial fiber optic temperature sensor products boast the highest performance specifications in the industry and provide a significant strategic advantage over competitive offerings.

OSENSA employs a team of like-minded, technology centred engineers and scientists who enjoy working on new challenges in a fun and fast-paced environment. We retain both full-time employees and independent contractors and have access to a network of technical and business specialists who are consulted routinely. Our goal is to harness the creative skills of the best people to develop the best products in the most efficient way possible. We partner with volume manufacturers and value added distributors to develop custom engineered solutions with greater performance specifications and a procurement model that ensures the lowest possible price point. We expect our customers will hold us accountable to the standards we set for ourselves, and we thank them for their on-going support.

Peter Rizun
Peter Rizun is the Chief Technology Officer at Osensa Innovations Corp. He holds a B.A.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics (British Columbia) and a Ph.D. degree in Medical Physics (Calgary). He was the recipient of the $105,000 Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) CGS Doctoral Award and was recognized as a “Leader of Tomorrow” by the Alberta Science and Technology Foundation (ASTech). He did graduate work on haptic telerobotic surgery (Project neuroArm), but wrote his thesis on the novel algorithms he developed for inertial/magnetic orientation sensing. His Ph.D. research has generated over $4 million in revenue via its commercialization for body-motion tracking and gait analysis by companies in Canada, USA, and Germany.
