Fiber optic based technology can provide cities with real-time positional insights about their road and public transport infrastructure....DAS is a photonic sensing technology that essentially ‘plugs in’ to existing fiber optic cable networks and transforms them into sophisticated acoustic sensors.
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
“FOSA applauds PHMSA Administrator Skip Elliott’s leadership toward creating a Pipeline Safety Facility,” said FOSA Chairman Mike Hines. “The test facility...we believe will dramatically improve pipeline safety."
Chris Shannon, Chief Executive of Fotech, commented: “We are excited to have a new investor at this pivotal point in Fotech’s growth story. Fiber optic sensing solutions have proven themselves invaluable in protecting pipelines, perimeters and borders around the world....
