Remote Sensing

Perimeter Security

The protection and security of critical assets such as power plants, airports, borders, and other kinds of infrastructures have never been more vital than today. The new distributed fiber optic sensor systems have better range and sensitivity than traditional sensor systems and can improve the security even further. Read more

Oil and Gas Sensing

Oil extraction is becoming ever more challenging as existing reservoirs produce less oil. Furthermore, to a large extent, oil and gas are being exploited at sea levels down to 3 kilometers causing major challenges for the operation and lifetime of equipment for both oil extraction and sensing.
