DAS converts a standard single mode telecoms fiber optic cable into an array of distributed sensors to deliver spatially and temporally rich traffic management information.
OptaSense, a QinetiQ company, a world leader in fiber-optic-based acoustic sensing and its regional project management partner, a local security systems integrator based in Pakistan, have been awarded a key pipeline and gas producing facility perimeter intrusion detection system project.
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.
