“OFS recognizes the value of DAS and sees a need for significant improvements in how optical waveguides support this problem-solving technology," said Mike Hines, Market Manager for OFS, [and FOSA Vice Chairman]. “AcoustiSens helps by meeting the challenge of greatly increasing Rayleigh backscatter
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.
Fiber optic sensing solutions have been used for some time in a wide array of perimeter security applications to detect suspected intrusions. The slightest deviation in the beams of light that are sent through fiber optic cables, which are made up of thin strands of plastic or glass, makes them idea
Optical fiber based systems have enabled improvements in capabilities and functionality that are simply not possible with copper-only systems.
