Paper Abstract

Given the obvious appeal of a distributed sensing system, it is perhaps surprising that so few distributed fiber optic sensors (DFOS) have so far appeared in the commercial marketplace, especially when considered in the light of the significant research effort that has been expended in this area. This paper describes an extensive review of the commercial prospects for DFOS which has recently been completed. Information on the suppliers and applications of commercially available DFOS systems--dominated by the optical fiber distributed temperature sensor--is presented. This is complemented by a review of the important trials of commercially available DFOS systems.
