Fiber optic based technology can provide cities with real-time positional insights about their road and public transport infrastructure....DAS is a photonic sensing technology that essentially ‘plugs in’ to existing fiber optic cable networks and transforms them into sophisticated acoustic sensors.
OptaSense, a QinetiQ company, has been deploying fiber optic DAS technology to gather permanent flow, seismic and vertical seismic profile data for clients. It’s cheaper than using ocean bottom nodes as well as offering a permanent broadband sensor downhole for time-lapse surveys
Launchpad has bought a technology company that focuses on developing and deploying fiber optic sensing. Fotech’s technology combines photonics, advanced artificial intelligence and edge computing to deliver advanced digital monitoring and asset management solutions
Chris Shannon, Chief Executive of Fotech, commented: “We are excited to have a new investor at this pivotal point in Fotech’s growth story. Fiber optic sensing solutions have proven themselves invaluable in protecting pipelines, perimeters and borders around the world....
“The RT80 trencher was built to adapt,” said Chris Thompson, Ditch Witch product manager, heavy-duty trenchers. “Faced with tighter deadlines, smaller budgets and more congested underground networks, contractors need a utility trencher that can fit and function in any environment.
