Optical fiber based sensor system for monitoring of infrastructures

FEBUS Optics is an innovative company based in Pau (France) bringing a new generation of optical fiber based sensor system to the market, in particular for the maintenance and monitoring of infrastructures.

Pipeline Monitoring


FEBUS A1 (DAS*) and FEBUS G1-R (DTS* and DSS*) products, bring an integrated Pipeline Integrity Monitoring Solution (PIMS) by merging strain, acoustic and temperature measurements in one single mode fiber optic cable.
FEBUS Optics PIMS (Pipeline Integrity Monitoring Solution) ensure a real-time, permanent and simultaneous detection, every meter along several tens of kilometers, of the following events:

  • Gas and oil Leak detection,
  • Geo-hazard detection such as landslides, mudslides and earthquakes,
  • Third Party Interference such as manual excavation, hot tapping, third-party excavation, heavy machine movement, position and scrap tracking as well as agricultural activities.

Pipeline Monitoring


  • Unique Merging of Data from DAS, DTS and DSS.
  • Long range monitoring (over 50 km distance)
  • Interoperability with SCADA or equivalent using MODBUS over TCP/IP
  • FEBUS proposes its Test Site Facility for preliminary experiment before field deployment
