Development of the fiber optic systems for monitoring

The Bragg gratings introduced into light guides make it possible to create the fiber optic measuring systems that are more preferable than usual systems due to its lower cost and better manufacturability.

Using the writing technology of the Bragg gratings distributed within the light guide, the hydro-acoustic antennas, the security systems for the extended objects, and the systems for monitoring the long-distance pipelines are developed. They find a broad demand abroad. Favorable features of these systems are the extended zones of control, operation speed, and unique information capability.
