“OFS recognizes the value of DAS and sees a need for significant improvements in how optical waveguides support this problem-solving technology," said Mike Hines, Market Manager for OFS, [and FOSA Vice Chairman]. “AcoustiSens helps by meeting the challenge of greatly increasing Rayleigh backscatter
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.
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.
