AcoustiSens optical fiber, when coupled via sensing cables to commercially available DAS systems, enables significant improvements in Acoustic Signal to Noise Ratio through dramatic gains in the Optical Signal to Noise Ratio of the fiber.
“OFS recognizes the value of DAS and sees a need for significant improvements in how optical waveguides support this problem-solving technology," said Mike Hines, Market Manager for OFS [and FOSA Vice Chairman]. “AcoustiSens helps by meeting the challenge of greatly increasing Rayleigh backscatter while maintaining low attenuation, thereby improving OSNR within the fiber. This translates to dramatic improvements in DAS ASNR at the systems level.”
