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
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
More than 260 visitors from 40 nations represented 101 companies and institutions from the railway industry at this year’s WDF…. Operators, system integrators, technical experts and decision-makers got in touch in an informal atmosphere.
“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]
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
