Fiber Optic Pipeline Leak and Intrusion Detection Utilizing Rayleigh Backscatter and Time of Flight Technologies

Fiber Optic Sensing

Fiber Optic Sensing is a newer aspect of industrial instrumentation that enables real-time measurements of long assets such as pipelines, conveyors, and perimeters. The Praetorian Fiber Optic Sensing System from HAWK is the only system on the market with a single interrogator that measures Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS), and Distributed Strain Sensing (DSS) all in a single enclosure. The benefit of making these measurements in a single system is those parallel measurements of strain, temperature, and acoustics can be made in their most basic form in real-time by a single processor, allowing for better pattern recognition and faster acquisition and confirmation of events. Another benefit of HAWK's Praetorian Fiber Optic Sensing System is that it ignores false alarms, resulting in one of the market's most accurate and dependable systems. This ground-breaking technology can safeguard assets, equipment, and perimeters. HAWK's Fiber Optic System is modular in design and can monitor up to 50 miles in real-time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This type of intelligent monitoring is critical for efficient operation and the protection of valuable assets.
