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.

Advancing the development of effective leak detection systems is critical to improving pipeline safety and preventing methane releases and other hazardous materials releases. Toward this objective, FOSA strongly supports a PHMSA pipeline safety and test facility

FEBUS Optics’ G1-C has been designed to provide quick and easy distributed temperature and strain sensing (DTS & DSS) for easy transportation and mobility.

FOSA announced the three winners of its first Innovation and Project Awards, Fotech, Hifi, and Optasense. The award’s presentation to the honorees was made in Washington at the association’s annual member meeting.

smart infrastructure is crucial to preventing, which is why [Kenichi Soga] was awarded the Bakar Prize for developing monitoring systems that utilize dynamic distributed fiber optic sensing technology.

AP Sensing’s Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology was recently deployed by Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) to monitor the power cable link.

researchers at NEC have shown it is possible to monitor traffic using “lit” fiber after separating out sensor and telecom data. Giovanni Milione of NEC Laboratories America, and colleagues used such fiber in Dallas and New Jersey to record the speed of cars as accurately as can be done with cameras
