When it comes to smart cities, DAS is set to be a vital part in the technology puzzle.
Due to its flexibility, DAS is likely to be one of the first ‘live’ installations of true smart city technology.
FOSA applauds Transportation Technology Center, Inc. study Fiber Optic Availability and Opportunity Analysis for North American Railroads. “The findings of this Federal government study confirm that fiber optic sensing can make significant cost-effective contributions to enhancing rail safety,"
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), the world’s premier fiber optic sensing trade association, released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world. The November 2107 data reflects the largest representative sample ever published.
FOSA officer slate for 2018: Greg Williams, Prysmian, was elected to the Board, and Geoffroy Lacoin, Omnisens, Gordon Youle, OZ Optics, and Vivek Caroli, Frauscher Sensor Technology USA, Inc. were reelected, to serve 2-year terms. Mike Hines Mike Hines of OFS, rose from Vice Chair to Chair.
Fotech Solutions has entered a partnership with Sercel to jointly develop future borehole seismic and distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) monitoring technology. Within the partnership, Fotech Solutions will contribute DAS measurement solutions.
