FOSA selected Representative Chuck Fleischmann (R-TN) based on his leadership in the 117th Congress toward securing our borders and enhancing the safety and security of U.S. critical infrastructure with advanced technology.
OptaSense having instrumented more than 25,000 km of pipes-including the 1850 km of the Trans-Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline running across Turkey.
AP Sensing’s Director of Research, Dr. Gareth Lees, collaborated on a Laser Focus World article titled “Smart fiber-optic sensing systems enhance physical border walls and fences.”
If you want to monitor physical borders, such as walls and fences, a fiber-optic sensing system is ideal as they enable you to measure sound, movement or temperature – continuously and in real-time – along with long structures.
For remote borders with little or no infrastructure, there are various techniques that can keep an eye, or rather an ear, out. QinetiQ, a British firm, has a system called OptaSense, which uses a fiber-optic cable laid in the ground. Sound from above creates vibrations in this cable.
