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.

Using the pre-existing trackside infrastructure and cables of Deutsche Bahn, AP Sensing’s Distributed Fiber Optic Sensing (DFOS) technology is used to collect live data along the track

AP Sensing recently conducted trackside fire trials with the German rail operator, Deutsche Bahn….Experimenting with various types of fire accelerants….test results were incredibly successful
