Dr. Chris Minto, Engineering Director of member company OptaSense, will present “Towards 1 Billion Sensors: Distributed Fiber Sensing as a Pervasive IoT Contributor” on behalf of FOSA during this week’s Optical Networking and Communication Conference (OFC) in San Diego, California.
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.
"Our approach has always been that when fiber-optic sensing is used, it's usually one of many other solutions," Mark Uncapher, the director of the Fiber Optic Sensing Association, told INSIDER.
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 trade association for distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS), today released a brief primer entitled FOSA Installation Considerations for Pipelines.
