...building new pipelines has become a national issue, due in no small part to fears over leaks, a new fiber optic-based pipeline monitoring technology has arrived at an opportune time. Hifi Engineering Inc.’s high fidelity dynamic sensing system provides a fully distributed monitoring
Hifi Engineering Inc….announced a major intellectual property milestone with their portfolio growing to over 50 patents approved and pending.
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)...will allow water companies to digitize their pipeline infrastructure and detect and monitor ruptures and leaks in existing pipes. Through the use of DAS technology — which harnesses optical fiber cables installed parallel to the water pipes
Dr. Chris Minto, Engineering Director of member company OptaSense, will present “Towards 1 Billion Sensors: Distributed Fiber Sensing as a Pervasive IoT Contributor” on behalf of FOSA during this week’s Optical Networking and Communication Conference (OFC) in San Diego, California.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) today called for the federal government and the pipeline industry to work together to establish a pipeline safety test facility in the United States.
