Laser Focus World July Cover Story written through the collaboration of FOSA members Wieland Hill, director of Advanced Sensing Systems at NKT Photonics, John J. Williams, regional director of infrastructure monitoring for the Americas at OptaSense, and Gareth Lees, research director at AP Sensing.
OptaSense, a QinetiQ company, a world leader in fiber-optic-based acoustic sensing and its regional project management partner, a local security systems integrator based in Pakistan, have been awarded a key pipeline and gas producing facility perimeter intrusion detection system project.
FOSA has urged the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Senate Commerce Committee to incorporate advanced technologies to help make the nation’s infrastructure safer, more resilient, and longer lasting.
Technologies such DAS...provide coverage of an entire perimeter and raise alerts in real-time, give security teams a comprehensive overview of their operations. In particular, the ability to detect potential intrusions at the earliest possible opportunity
Dr. Chris Minto, Engineering Director of member company OptaSense, will present “Towards 1 Billion Sensors: Distributed Fiber Sensing as a Pervasive IoT Contributor” on behalf of FOSA during this week’s Optical Networking and Communication Conference (OFC) in San Diego, California.
