Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is a sensing technology that delivers real time spatially resolved acoustic and vibration output from virtually unlimited points along a fiber optic cable. The technology effectively turns common optical fiber into a series of thousands of sensitive virtual microphones or vibration sensing devices. DAS produces thousands of channels of acoustic output from these virtual microphones – in real time.
