Paper Abstract

This paper firstly presents a novel optical sensor technology developed to locate, from above ground, the lateral position of a buried dielectrically sheathed optical cable. Then, optical sensor methods for the distributed sensing and longitudinal positioning of time-varying acoustic disturbances are presented. It is hoped to present results of a novel field-trial capable OTDR based system in the verbal presentation.
