“The benefit of what we’ve shown is not just for leak detection in pipelines....The [DAS] technology has greater benefits for the safety of the human race, long term.” [explains Dr. Peter Hayward of Fotech Solutions]
“OFS recognizes the value of DAS and sees a need for significant improvements in how optical waveguides support this problem-solving technology," comments Mike Hines, market manager for OFS [and FOSA Vice Chairman].
Technologies such DAS...provide coverage of an entire perimeter and raise alerts in real-time, give security teams a comprehensive overview of their operations. In particular, the ability to detect potential intrusions at the earliest possible opportunity
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)...will allow water companies to digitize their pipeline infrastructure and detect and monitor ruptures and leaks in existing pipes. Through the use of DAS technology — which harnesses optical fiber cables installed parallel to the water pipes
When it comes to smart cities, DAS is set to be a vital part in the technology puzzle.
Due to its flexibility, DAS is likely to be one of the first ‘live’ installations of true smart city technology.
