Commenting on the USACE Circular, FOSA Chairman Mike Hines said, “FOSA appreciates the Corps of Engineers’ Levee Safety Program’s focus on monitoring and managing flood risks associated with levees. Given the dynamic nature of flood risk, this Circular establishes an appropriate framework.”
Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions discusses the need to improve transport infrastructure for cities today….Combining cutting-edge photonics, AI and edge computing, new sophisticated distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) platforms can interpret this acoustic data.
Many land and undersea oil operations rely heavily on temperature sensing for improved safety and functionality in harsh environments. Silica-based optical fibers have been increasingly used for distributed temperature and acoustic sensing applications….In recent work, OFS performed an experimental
For intrusion detection, OptaSense uses a distributed acoustic sensing setup that analyzes the Rayleigh scattering....The strain signature of a fiber-optic cable around 50 km long can be deconvolved to detect movement at distances of around 10 m from the fiber with a 1 m accuracy.
