Fotech combines advanced fibre optic sensing and AI that automates tedious monitoring activities.
Our pioneering Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology sits at the core of our services and provides unrivalled sensory data that helps our customers solve business-critical challenges.
Our solutions deliver new insights that have helped our customers across energy, security, infrastructure, and city and transport sectors optimise day-to-day operations.
Using fibre optic cables, Fotech’s DAS technology can monitor perimeters of all sizes automatically, giving you an enhanced understanding of in-situ activities, and gather intelligence on events and patterns in and around a perimeter. Detect, locate, and prevent attempts to gain unauthorised access.
Using fibre optic cables that are often hidden from view, Fotech’s DAS technology can monitor international borders automatically, giving you an enhanced understanding of in-situ activities, and gather intelligence on events and patterns in and around a border.
Fotech’s Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology converts thousands of kilometres of optical fibres already in place in our cities into millions of acoustic and vibration sensors. DAS converts cables into a network of state-of-the-art sensors. This allows cities to send and receive information and simultaneously monitor city infrastructure, in real-time, at a much more detailed level, all while providing anonymity to its citizens.
With Fotech’s LiveDETECT® smart transport management technology you can gain real-time visibility of the integrity and efficiency of your transport network by harnessing advanced artificial intelligence and edge computing to detect, classify and report on traffic and transport infrastructure with certainty.
Fotech’s DAS technology platform provides a full suite of capabilities for operators and system integrators within the railway industry including; broken rail and flat wheel detection, train tracking, and comprehensive trackside security and protection.
Whether protecting against copper cable theft, data interception, subsea anchor drag, or locating cable fatigue and break down – optimise your cable network with technology that delivers the information you want to know, and only reports on integrity issues and actual threats to your cable infrastructure.
As the demand for green energy continues to grow, offshore energy operators have an expanding network of subsea power cables to monitor and maintain. With cable outages disappointing customers and costing operators a great deal of time and money, preventing cable failures, and quickly identifying and planning for the repair of damage is vital.
Increasingly we depend on a connected world and is especially true for the power and communications cables we rely so heavily on. These cables are vulnerable to both accidental and malicious damage, as well as electrical and mechanical failures and interruptions leave customers disappointed and are costly to operators.
Optimise your pipeline network with a monitoring platform that delivers the information you want to know, and only reports on actual threats to your pipeline. With Fotech’s technology solutions you can explore your pipeline network, enhance your understanding of in-situ activities, and gather intelligence on prolonged or historical events on your network.
Using Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), Fotech’s LivePIPE II® solution processes vast quantities of data in real-time and extracts the actionable information needed to protect your pipelines with zero false positives.
Pipeline operators face a constant battle against a range of potential threats - whether that is corrosion, accidental damage or leaks that may result in environmental harm. It is a difficult balancing act, and it is not getting easier.
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.
