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
DAS technology provides a ready-made solution for the offshore wind industry to monitor and protect these crucial cables. DAS identifies, with clarity and confidence, the different disturbances that impact cabling in offshore wind farms
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.
