Join our next webinar: "Fiber Optic Sensing - Towards a Billion Sensors"
presented by the FOSA Technology Committee
Distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) is a problem-solver for many industries like rail, pipeline, in-well monitoring, and perimeter and border security. With the emergence of Smart City applications, we see DFOS playing a significant role as a part of future telecom infrastructure.
DFOS systems installed along infrastructure convert fiber optic cables into an array of thousands of sensors
The presentation will provide a technical introduction to Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing, examples of common DFOS applications and solutions, its major benefits, examples of installation methods, and a look at how DFOS is rapidly expanding to provide billions of data points as part of the IoT landscape. Presented by 2017-2018 FOSA Technology Committee Chair Dr. Chris Minto.
Dr. Chris Minto is a global expert on fiber optic sensing, having been involved in more than 250 projects worldwide in multiple industries and geographies. With a background in sonar system design, Chris was part of the founding team of OptaSense, which has since become the world’s largest provider of distributed fiber optic sensing solutions. Chris is currently the Engineering Director of OptaSense with responsibility for New Product Development and Research across the group. Chris has a PhD in Physics and is a Member of the Institute of Physics and is both a Chartered Engineer and Chartered Physicist.
