Using solutions such as DAS, fiber optic cabling can be transformed into a network of highly sensitive acoustic sensors – innately ‘listening’ to the activities around them.
Frauscher has founded a new, separate company, Sensonic, for its Fiber Optic Sensing (FOS) business, and rebranding itself as two technology companies “ready for the future.”
Observing this "backscatter" phenomenon through a technique called Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), the 20 km long cable was turned into a bed of 10,000 motion sensors that could detect seismic activity with picometer precision.
AP Sensing...recently received funding from the Department for Transport as part of Network Rail’s R&D program....sensors will tap into Network Rail’s existing fiber optic cable network using AP Sensing’s Distributed Acoustic/Vibration Sensing
OptaSense DAS technology's unique features deliver unmatched measurement performance in the market. Based on its recent analysis of the European distributed fiber-optic sensing market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes OptaSense with the 2019 Europe Product Leadership Award
