SAMM Teknoloji Introduces Two Versions of FOTAS
Our company SAMM Teknoloji is proud to present FOTAS, a project developed in our R&D center with the cooperation of TUBITAK BILGEM.
Public and private sector organizations around the world have to deal with serious costs to ensure the security of their premises, work-fields, campuses, roads and pipelines. Such areas can be so long and wide that makes it diffucult to monitor and detect any threat.
Having many unique qualities, using fiber optic cables in security and detection systems has become a new revolutionary solution. The most important of these qualities is sensitivity. Any nearby vibration or even sound easily affects a laser signal passing through a fiber cable; this helps optical receivers to sense and detect the slightest of changes in vibration with high position accuracy at any point of the line. Fiber optic cables can make high precise measurements compared to electronic sensors. They are also resistant to lightning, corrosion and water over very long distances.
There are various methods of detection methods using a fiber optic cable. Our FOTAS system mainly uses a method called DAS, Distributed Acoustic Sensing. This method provides accurate acoustic detection of mechanical movements occurring at any point near a deployed fiber optic cable or above a buried one.
Be safe from Possible Threats with FOTAS
FOTAS is a real-time, 24-hour, reliable and cost-effective threat detection system. It offers the opportunity to detect any threat within a pre-designated area before the occurrence of serious damage, with up to 10 meters accuracy.
With the help of the web interface, multiple users on the same network can monitor FOTAS system at the same time.
With support for third party security systems such CCTV, our system provides real-time detection and faster responses, which greatly improves the security level.
One unique benefit of FOTAS system is that it does not require any electronic devices or any energy source in any area along the deployed sensing fiber cable. In other words; a fiber optic cable, properly installed underground or on a fence, is sufficient to secure the entire area with high accuracy.
Distributed acoustic sensing using fiber optic cables is the ultimate modern solution for security. It is highly recommended for different security application areas such as airports, railways, energy facilities, oil refineries, buried oil and gas pipeline systems; and to provide more suitable security for different applications. We have developed two versions of our FOTAS detection systems.
The Two Versions of FOTAS, SL-10 and SL-50
The SL-50 model of FOTAS system can detect threats along a fiber cable up to 50 km. If a longer distance is required, it is sufficient to increase the number of optical devices. Thanks to the deep learning and artificial intelligence, the system identifies the detected acoustic effects as events and classifies them according to the type of action such as digging, machine excavation, vehicle crossing and trespassing.
The other model of FOTAS system is SF-10, and it can detect threats such as climbing or cutting a fence up to 10 km.
