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.
FOSA applauded recent action by the U.S. House of Representatives to facilitate greater pipeline safety.
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.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association announced the creation of a Technology Committee consisting of industry experts. As an initial activity, the committee will address fiber sensing installation considerations at a high level.
