Border Surveillance and Perimeter Intrusion Prevention.
Fotech's LiveDETECT security monitoring system is augmented to deliver information 24/7 and only reports on actual threats to 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 integrity 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 through cable condition monitoring – 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.
Our fibre optic cable sensing 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 and leak detection 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
Extreme weather can affect pipeline integrity and security, leading to serious breaches. But DAS pipeline monitoring technology can help to safeguard supplies.
As bp buys up 40% of Australia’s Pilbara Renewable Energy Project, we explore the benefits of green hydrocarbon and how DAS asset monitoring can safeguard its production.
With Net Zero Teesside pioneering new carbon capture storage facilities in the UK, DAS technology can support a greener future by protecting CCUS pipelines.
Fotech appoints Chris Ferguson as new Global Product Owner for Security as the company continues to scale up.
External Leak Detection Systems (LDS) have been included in American Petroleum Institute (API) standards for the first time, a major milestone for DAS technology and enhancing pipeline safety in the O&G pipeline industry.
Fotech Promotes Stuart Bausor to Regional Sales Specialist for the European region.
