Transport networking has become an important element in major cities. Increasing number of vehicles has led to reduced road space, accidents, and traffic jams. However, all these situations are not managed by current traffic systems. Due to this, adoption of distributed acoustic sensing is increasing for traffic monitoring. Distributed acoustic sensing by fiber optic cable networks has advantages over other smart transport technologies, as the diffusion of fiber optic cables covers almost all parts of cities and road infrastructure. After the fiber optic cables are placed, there is no need of digging up the street and installing cameras and fit point sensors. Distributed acoustic sensing systems analyze traffic speed and density, detect traffic jams, and also help identify disruptions such as accidentally broken-down vehicles. It creates a complete picture of the transport network situation in the city, and this information is transmitted to citizens through certain apps where they can see the road traffic.

Capability to Withstand Harsh Environment and Temperature Conditions

Distributed acoustic sensing can detect changes over long distance intervals that are suitable for functions that involve harsh environment. These conditions are intrinsic to petroleum and oil & gas industries. Companies are adopting distributed acoustic sensing to determine properties and characteristics of flow in different pipes near the wellbore. Adoption of distributed acoustic sensing is increasing due to technological advancements and durability and reliability of fiber optic systems. Advancements in glass chemistry and enhancements in processing speed are making data interpretation faster and easier for users across various industries. This leads to increased demand for distributed acoustic sensing in the market.

Introducing New Solutions to Address Challenges Associated with Volumes of Data

Increasing efforts to overcome data management challenges associated with distributed acoustic sensing is one of the major trends witnessed in the global distributed acoustic sensing market. Distributed acoustic sensing solutions generate vast amounts of data in a short period of time, thereby, creating challenges for companies to store those data.

  • For instance, a distributed acoustic sensing system can generate 5TB of data per day during a hydraulic fracturing monitoring operation.

Without a purpose-designed data management system to handle this workload, operators are currently using a patchwork of software solutions to extract and compress the large data sets from distributed acoustic sensing systems. However, several companies are working on introducing new solutions, such as high-speed supercomputers. The high-speed computer help analyze, visualize, and automatically extract key findings in the raw data produced by distributed acoustic sensing.

Developments in Extraction of Precise Quantitative Information

Despite the volumes of newly acquired data through distributed acoustic sensing systems, there is still a need for more precise information regarding downhole activities. Currently, majority of the DTS and distributed acoustic sensing systems offer a descriptive or qualitative observation. Although there is vast value attached to qualitative information, operators are looking for data with quantitative measurements, which in turn, will help them analyze the dynamics of well and reservoir more efficiently. In order to cater to the increasing demand from operators for more precise information, technology developers are working to reduce the gap. Leading players in the distributed acoustic sensing market such as Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, and OptaSense are continuously investing significant funds to develop quantitative solutions for distributed acoustic sensing. These companies are incorporating algorithms developed by several oil and gas clients into the surface interrogator units to quantitatively determine the flow of fluid across wells and pipelines.

Utilization of Distributed Acoustic Sensing in Energy and Power Sector

Assets related to energy transmission and distribution are considered assets of critical national security, similar to other energy transfer infrastructure. The distributed acoustic sensing technology can be utilized in this sector to provide utilities with additional capabilities in terms of reliability and security. Features such as inherent reliability and passive nature of fiber optic-based acoustic sensing is expected to make distributed acoustic sensing a worthy technology for a number of applications in the energy and power industry. These include effective intervention and intrusion monitoring. For instance, the most advanced distributed acoustic sensing technologies can be deployed through existing fiber optic infrastructure, making the technology ideal for retrofit applications. This, in turn, is expected to create potential business opportunities for vendors operating in the global distributed acoustic sensing market.
