FOSA representatives presented Common Ground Alliance’s Technology Committee Spotlight Webinar “Damage Prevention Opportunities using Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing.” The webinar highlighted fiber optic sensing technology advancing damage prevention.
DFOS based pipeline leak detection and location software (DFOS-PLDS) is possibly the most important technological development in pipeline leak detection in recent years
"Distributed fiber optic sensing techniques offer powerful tools for the monitoring of long, linear assets, such as highways, " reports Gareth Lees, FOSA Technology Committee Chairman.
FOSA released a brief primer entitled Cable Installation Considerations for Fire Detection. The document contains guidance on specific requirements of fire detection in tunnels, large buildings, industrial sites and large equipment.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) today called for the federal government and the pipeline industry to work together to establish a pipeline safety test facility in the United States.
