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
Turkish Aselsan's exports reached a record 50% rise, the company said in a statement
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.
Researchers are studying ways to use existing fiber-optic cables as distributed sensors to collect data on city road conditions. Verizon and NEC recently conducted a proof-of-concept field trial
Observing this "backscatter" phenomenon through a technique called Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), the 20 km long cable was turned into a bed of 10,000 motion sensors that could detect seismic activity with picometer precision.
