Subsea monitoring with iDAS™
By interrogating an optical fibre placed on or in the asset and using Silixa’s iDAS, intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor, we provide the operator with real time alerts of unexpected events or adjacent activity, delivered with a metre-scale location accuracy.
The technique relies on detecting tiny changes in the behaviour within an optical fibre due to sound hitting the cable. By capturing and analysing these changes we can fully recreate the acoustic signal and by further processing generate the alerts instantaneously.
