OptaSense, a QinetiQ company, has been deploying fiber optic DAS technology to gather permanent flow, seismic and vertical seismic profile data for clients. It’s cheaper than using ocean bottom nodes as well as offering a permanent broadband sensor downhole for time-lapse surveys
Launchpad has bought a technology company that focuses on developing and deploying fiber optic sensing. Fotech’s technology combines photonics, advanced artificial intelligence and edge computing to deliver advanced digital monitoring and asset management solutions
DAS technology provides a ready-made solution for the offshore wind industry to monitor and protect these crucial cables. DAS identifies, with clarity and confidence, the different disturbances that impact cabling in offshore wind farms
Using solutions such as DAS, fiber optic cabling can be transformed into a network of highly sensitive acoustic sensors – innately ‘listening’ to the activities around them.
Frauscher has founded a new, separate company, Sensonic, for its Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS) business, and rebranding itself as two technology companies “ready for the future.”
