SBIR Phase II: Fiber Optic Sensors for Direct Pipeline Monitoring Under Geohazard Conditions

The project will develop, test and verify a mechanically, environmentally, and age-robust optical distributed and point monitoring sensor that can be permanently and cost effectively installed onto pipelines. These sensors will detect strain from geohazards, leaks, corrosion and 3rd party tampering using a commercial service.
