Based on its recent analysis of the European distributed fiber-optic sensing market, Frost & Sullivan recognized OptaSense with the 2019 Europe Product Leadership Award for its highly effective fiber-optic sensing solution.
"At the core of its DAS technology is the ODH-4 DAS interrogator unit, which offers real-time delivery of the quantitative phase of intensity measurements, global positioning system time synchronization, and single or multi-mode fibre interrogation," said Krishna Raman, Industry Manager at Frost & Sullivan. "This solution features easily adjustable gauge length settings and can reach flat frequency response down to 0 hertz while mitigating vibrational noise and processing wavelength diversity. Compared to its previous solutions, the ODH-4 interrogation unit increases sensitivity by 6 decibels, ensuring higher production rates for vertical seismic profile surveys."
"OptaSense’s DAS technology equips operators with the tools needed to gain control of the completion process and mitigate any potential operational issues and losses associated with mechanical failures," noted Raman. "Overall, its strong commitment to technological innovation, remarkable DAS solution, and customer-centric approach position OptaSense for further growth in the distributed fiber-optic sensing market."
