Fiber optic sensing technology converts cables installed alongside transport infrastructure, such as railroads or highways, into an array of thousands of sensors which can detect acoustics, temperature or strain signals by using optical sensing techniques.
FOSA recognized Representative Will Hurd (R-TX) as a recipient of FOSA’s Champion of Innovation Award for 2018. The selection, based on the extraordinary leadership demonstrated by Hurd in the 115th Congress to make U.S. security programs more effective
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), the world’s premier fiber optic sensing trade association, released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world. The November 2107 data reflects the largest representative sample ever published.
Twelve companies have banded together to form a new trade association focusing on the fiber optic sensing business. The new group, the Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), officially launched on 24 April 2017, and is slated to hold its first public meeting on 17 May.
