The use of distributed sensing is on the rise...The technology pinpoints activity down to just five meters, using optical fibers already present alongside power cables to detect vibrations caused by threats.
.DAS (distributed acoustic sensing) is increasingly being recognized as an important defense against not just pipeline leaks and spills, but also criminal and malicious damage
Distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) can turn every meter of a fiber optics cable into a vibration or strain sensor....real-world use cases describe the technical reality of tracking vibration along a fiber optic cable,
Since fiber optics is the supporting infrastructure of 5G networks, its roll-out means there is a larger network of cables into which we can tap for sensing
For smart cities, this is where fiber optic technology is key. Data - and the sensors and technology used to collect it - is central to smart city development....The right technology is already here….fiber optic telecommunication cables can be used as sensors; Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)
