US Army Corps of Engineers is currently implementing a levee improvement project,,,,With support from the National Science Foundation and USACE, the [Berekely Engineering] research team embedded optical fiber sensors
Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions, said, “The findings of this research not only demonstrate that the appetite for smart city progress remains strong, they also highlight the need for more practical approaches to creating smart city systems
AP Sensing’s DAS system was used for preliminary earthquake observations and research at the University of Tokyo….One DAS interrogator unit was installed… and data collected over 100 km
Commenting on the USACE Circular, FOSA Chairman Mike Hines said, “FOSA appreciates the Corps of Engineers’ Levee Safety Program’s focus on monitoring and managing flood risks associated with levees. Given the dynamic nature of flood risk, this Circular establishes an appropriate framework.”
Using a system supplied by Frauscher, a fiber-optic cable is laid along the line, which uses rail defectoscopy to detect cracks or breaks in the rail by picking up the vibrations produced by the train passing by.
