Development and Application of Optical Fiber Intrusion Sensor

The scope of this project is to develop a fence intrusion sensor by optical fiber for security monitoring purpose. Senstar-Stellar is the world's leading supplier of outdoor perimeter intrusion detection sensors and systems. The R&D group is seeking for new idea and new technique for building a high performance distributed intrusion sensor with large area coverage and low false alarm rate. Our current research area is distributed optical fiber sensor for dynamic measurements and we had successfully demonstrated a novel optical fiber vibration sensor in the lab environment. The intern will improve the current setup according to the specific field requirements and conduct some field tests on site. This project is in partnership with the GEOIDE NCE.
