...building new pipelines has become a national issue, due in no small part to fears over leaks, a new fiber optic-based pipeline monitoring technology has arrived at an opportune time. Hifi Engineering Inc.’s high fidelity dynamic sensing system provides a fully distributed monitoring
“The benefit of what we’ve shown is not just for leak detection in pipelines....The [DAS] technology has greater benefits for the safety of the human race, long term.” [explains Dr. Peter Hayward of Fotech Solutions]
Hifi Engineering Inc….announced a major intellectual property milestone with their portfolio growing to over 50 patents approved and pending.
Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS)...will allow water companies to digitize their pipeline infrastructure and detect and monitor ruptures and leaks in existing pipes. Through the use of DAS technology — which harnesses optical fiber cables installed parallel to the water pipes
