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.

Oil and gas pipeline monitoring

FEBUS Optics offers a complete solution for oil and gas pipeline monitoring to:

  • monitor the integrity of pipelines,
  • secure the installation against external threats,
  • detect any risks caused by natural events.

Our solution FOPipe for oil and gas pipeline monitoring is offered to provide a response to these challenges. It comes with proprietary software, FOPipe Suite, and patented measuring devices.

Using distributed fiber optic measurement technology, FOPipe generates real-time alerts in the event of incidents and precisely locates them.


When failures occur on an oil and gas pipeline, production is directly impacted, environmental and human risks increase. Continuous monitoring of such structures is therefore essential.

FOPipe is the combination of our interrogators, our software solution, and the support of our technical teams to:

  • detect leaks and infiltrations,
  • perform preventive maintenance,
  • monitor the movement of the scraper pig in the pipeline,
  • monitor the flow of products.

The FEBUS A1 (DAS - Distributed Acoustic Sensing) performs acoustic measurements (Rayleigh technology).

The FEBUS G1-R (DTSS - Distributed Temperature and Strain Sensing) is sensitive to temperature and strain (Brillouin technology).

The FEBUS T1-R (DTS - Distributed Temperature Sensing) provides temperature data (Raman technology).


Our FOPipe pipeline monitoring solution enables the detection of any third-party intrusion near the structure: approach of vehicle, drilling activities, pedestrian passage, etc.

Our third-party intrusion detection system operates at all points along the pipeline.

Our software solution FOPipe Suite generates alarms, classifies, and precisely geolocates events in real-time. Depending on the pipeline installation context, specific notification trigger thresholds are defined to prevent false alerts. The system is then trained to identify the different types of events and classify them.

  • An appropriate response is implemented very quickly to reduce threats to the pipeline.
  • Maintenance operations are optimized in terms of time, resources, costs, reducing risks for intervention teams.

Ground movements and other seismic events can damage the integrity of a pipeline.

Our FOPipe solution rapidly detects these events thanks to the state-of-the-art sensitivity of our FEBUS A1 (DAS - Distributed Acoustic Sensing). A real-time alert is generated, indicating its precise location on a georeferenced map.

An intervention is promptly organized, limiting damage to the pipeline.


FEBUS Optics aligns the performance of its patented technologies, the experience in handling complex projects, and the expertise of its teams.

Our FOPipe solution offers complete, continuous, and real-time monitoring to support our clients in monitoring water pipelines and waswater networks, by detecting leaks and intrusions near the pipeline.

All our interrogators come with a 3-year warranty. Our experts provide training and support throughout the projects. Finally, we offer customized maintenance contracts and service continuity.
