Welcome to Fotech, a bp Launchpad company and trusted partner to our customers in over 25 countries in the smart cities, infrastructure, security, and pipeline sectors.
We combine photonics and technical expertise to deliver, fibre-enabled solutions and deep insights that empower customers to make data-driven decisions.
Founded in 2008, we are focused on innovation and excellence as we continuously seek to pioneer sensing technology.
Border Surveillance and Perimeter Intrusion Prevention.
Fotech's LiveDETECT system is augmented to deliver information 24/7 and only reports on actual threats to your perimeters and borders - whether protecting against perimeter intrusions, illegal border crossings, terrorist, or criminal activity.
Getting accurate intelligence quickly and efficiently can be a challenge for pipeline operators.
Fotech’s fibre enabled, distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) technology provides you with a real-time toolset to monitor your pipeline with confidence.
Gain real-time visibility of the integrity and security of your entire cable network.
Whether protecting against copper cable theft, data interception, subsea anchor drag, or locating cable fatigue and break down – optimise your network with technology that reports on integrity issues and actual threats to your cable infrastructure.
Fotech’s DAS technology converts the optical fibres already in place in our cities into millions of acoustic and vibration sensors.
This allows cities to send and receive information with the benefit of providing anonymity to its citizens, but also to monitor city infrastructure continuously – in real-time and on a much more detailed level.
With LivePIPE® smart pipeline monitoring system you can gain instantaneous visibility of the integrity and security of your entire pipeline network.
Fotech's Helios DAS technology taps into fibre optic cables running along infrastructure and assets for uninterrupted feedback on activities as they happen.Helios DAS
Helios Theta harnesses cutting-edge photonics and advanced artificial intelligence to provide high resolution imaging and data acquisition continuously along the length of your fibre.Helios Theta
Using advanced AI technology, Panoptes differentiates between background noises and real threats to ensure that you have the information you need to respond effectively.Panoptes
Enhanced Data and Acoustic Management (EDAM) is an advanced processing solution which may be added to Helios® DAS and Panoptes® for deeper acoustic insights.EDAM
Safeguarding telecoms cables against downtime and disaster is a difficult business – but evolving DAS technology plays an important role, as our blog explains.
Water pipeline leaks and damage can cost billions. Find out how DAS technology enables automated, real-time pipeline monitoring to safeguard water pipeline infrastructure.
How Smart Cities Benefit from Fibre Optic Technology
Data, and the sensors and technology used to collect it is central to smart city development. It gives decision-makers valuable insights to efficiently manage assets, resources and services.
Today is International Women in Engineering Day, and to celebrate, we’re talking to Maria Shiao, our Chief Sales Officer about her route into engineering.
With more than 25 years' experience in leading teams to develop new technologies in artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) and data management across a range of industries, Cammish joins Fotech at an exciting and challenging point in its growth.
Pipeline safety is major news. The recent cyber-attack on the Colonial Pipeline, which caused the largest pipeline in the US to shut down for days, has highlighted the very real and present threat to oil and gas supplies. It has brought pipeline safety front of mind.
