FOSA commended the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science & Transportation for its passage of S. 2299, Protecting Our Infrastructure of Pipelines Enhancing Safety (PIPES) Act of 2019.
...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
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
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) today called for the federal government and the pipeline industry to work together to establish a pipeline safety test facility in the United States.
