The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA) announced the winners of its annual Champion of Innovation Award. FOSA selected Senators Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and J.D. Vance (R-OH) based on their extraordinary leadership in the 118th Congress toward enhancing the safety and security of the U.S. rail system. Distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS), FOSA’s technology focus, is ideally suited to applications in rail where fiber optic cables running parallel to tracks improve safety through detection of pedestrians, monitoring of freight and passenger traffic, and immediate detection and locational pinpointing of both track and rolling stock defects.

Hifi announced the achievement of 100 patents approved and pending for Hifi’s technology portfolio. The 100 patent milestone includes…”Method and System for Detecting Dynamic Strain” which enables direct and conduit-based deployment of fiber optic sensors along linear assets such as pipelines
