Paper Abstract

The work presented in this paper demonstrates a sensing technology for unattended seismic sensors based on the optical fiber Bragg grating. This kind of sensor can perform accurate measurements of the seismic activity due to their high sensitivity to dynamic strains caused by small ground vibrations. One of the applications is its deployment in the battlefield remote monitoring system to track and geo-locate the presence of personnel, wheeled vehicles, and tracked vehicles. The experimental data of the field test are shown as well as the comparable result with commercial seismic sensors.
