Silixa will be participating in a two-day hands-on workshop on the theory, application and analysis of distributed fibre optic sensing at Nasa’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, USA on 9–10 December 2017.

The workshop is organized by the Center for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs, CTEMPs, an organization that promotes field-deployable high-precision fiber optic temperature measurement systems, wireless self-organizing multi-parameter sensor stations, and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) primarily to researchers to find new ways to implement these technologies in earth sciences. Experiment designs, installations, and data analysis is supported by a staff of scientists.

CTEMPs has been providing distributed temperature sensor training for years, but this year they are expanding the scope of the workshop to distributed acoustic sensing as well. Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with Silixa’s intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor (iDAS) and XT-DTS, the ruggedized distributed temperature sensor for extreme environments.

Examples will be taken from passive and active DTS applications, active and passive seismic monitoring, and acoustic monitoring in pipes.
