FOSA representatives presented Common Ground Alliance’s Technology Committee Spotlight Webinar “Damage Prevention Opportunities using Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing.” The webinar highlighted fiber optic sensing technology advancing damage prevention.
Based on research that concludes the commercial viability of distributed acoustic sensing in conduit, the sensing industry can enjoy the same robust conduit pathway benefits and advantages with highly sensitive commercial DAS implementation.
Dura-Line’s Technology Summit 2019: MicroTrenching was organized to shed light on how microtrenching is being deployed in several cities around the country, including Austin, Texas; New York; San Francisco; San Antonio; and Charlotte, North Carolina.
FOSA officer slate for 2018: Greg Williams, Prysmian, was elected to the Board, and Geoffroy Lacoin, Omnisens, Gordon Youle, OZ Optics, and Vivek Caroli, Frauscher Sensor Technology USA, Inc. were reelected, to serve 2-year terms. Mike Hines Mike Hines of OFS, rose from Vice Chair to Chair.
Distributed and quasi-distributed fiber optic sensors are systems that connect opto-electronic interrogators to an optical fiber (or cable), converting the fiber to an array of distributed sensors.
