Silixa will be presenting on distributed fibre optic temperature and distributed fibre optic acoustic sensing for remote and harsh environments at SPIE.DSS 2015 in Baltimore, Maryland on 23 April, 2015. (Paper 9491-13, Session 4: Optical Sensing Technology for Harsh Environments II, time: 2:10:00 PM.)

Advances in opto-electronics and associated signal processing have enabled the development of optical fibre distributed acoustic and temperature sensors. Unlike systems relying on discrete optical sensors a distributed system does not rely upon manufactured sensors but utilises passive custom optical fibre cables resistant to harsh environments, including high temperature applications.

The use of Silixa’s iDAS and DTS systems in surface, seabed, and downhole applications allows a continuum of benefits extending to condition and integrity monitoring, all using the same optical fibre cable.

SPIE.DSS, the most important technical conference on optics, imaging, and sensing for defence, security, industry, health, and the environment, will host around 6,000 scientists and researchers from all over the world.
