The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), the world’s premier fiber optic sensing trade association, today released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world. The data reflects the largest representative sample ever published.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) today applauded PHMSA Administrator nominee Howard Elliott’s focus on technology solutions to address safety issues, including in the pipeline and rail sectors.
Distributed and quasi-distributed fiber optic sensors are systems that connect opto-electronic interrogators to an optical fiber (or cable), converting the fiber to an array of distributed sensors.
Fiber Optic Sensing Association today applauded the U.S. Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) for promoting research and development on pipeline safety, including taking the first step in developing a Recommended Practice document for external pipeline leak detection.
