fibrisTerre provides structural health monitoring solutions. Combining its pioneering Brillouin Optical Frequency Domain Analysis (BOFDA) based distributed fiber-optic sensing technology and industry know-how, fibrisTerre integrates modern, efficient and reliable distributed monitoring systems into critical engineering structures.

Our Technology
Developed with the support of the German Federal Institute for Materials Research (BAM), fibrisTerre pioneered the BOFDA technology that is capable of performing simultaneous distributed strain and temperature monitoring over long distance.

Our Mission
fibrisTerre aims to answer the current industry demands for truly distributed and economically viable monitoring solutions for the civil, geotechnical and energy sector.

Using its state of the art BODFA technology, fibrisTerre endeavors to help its customers accurately detect potential structural problems at an early stage thereby avoiding catastrophic failures. Continuously performing strain and temperature readings at all points along its long distance cables, fibrisTerre’s systems leave no critical spots unattended.

Industry and Applications:

  • Oil and gas pipeline monitoring
  • Early failure detection in geotechnical structures
  • Fatigue monitoring of bridges, tunnels, dams
  • Displacement detection in mining
  • Online monitoring of river embankments

Fiber-optic nerves for Structural Health Monitoring
Uninterrupted monitoring for stress and fatigue is essential to prevent failure of large structures. The fibrisTerre system uses the same standard optical fibers used in everyday telecommunications – connected to the readout unit, the fibers become highly sensitive nerves within soil and concrete.

The complete monitoring solution: fibrisTerre provides

  • project planning and sensor installation
  • in-situ measurements
  • data analysis and management
