Title: Distributed gas detection system and method

Abstract

A distributed gas detection system includes one or more hollow core fibers disposed in different locations, one or more solid core fibers optically coupled with the one or more hollow core fibers and configured to receive light of one or more wavelengths from a light source, and an interrogator device configured to receive at least some of the light propagating through the one or more solid core fibers and the one or more hollow core fibers. The interrogator device is configured to identify a location of a presence of a gas-of-interest by examining absorption of at least one of the wavelengths of the light at least one of the hollow core fibers.

  • A method and apparatus for the detection of leaks in an interconnected pipeline system are disclosed. The method involves recording flow characteristics over a specific, short time period, e.g., one-half hour daily, at control stations distributed throughout the network. By arranging the control stations in this manner, subnetworks are defined and the existence of leaks therein determined in accordance with deviations in measurements which facilitate localization procedures for the leaks. The apparatus is a well for use at the control stations immovably fixed in the network and accessible from the outside.
  • A system of and method for maintaining data objects in containers across a network of distributed heterogeneous resources in a manner which is transparent to a client. A client request pertaining to containers is resolved by querying meta data for the container, processing the request through one or more copies of the container maintained on the system, updating the meta data for the container to reflect any changes made to the container as a result processing the re quest, and, if a copy of the container has changed, changing the status of the copy to indicate dirty status or synchronizingmore » the copy to one or more other copies that may be present on the system.« less

  • A search system and method for controlling multiple agents to optimize an objective using distributed sensing and cooperative control. The search agent can be one or more physical agents, such as a robot, and can be software agents for searching cyberspace. The objective can be: chemical sources, temperature sources, radiation sources, light sources, evaders, trespassers, explosive sources, time dependent sources, time independent sources, function surfaces, maximization points, minimization points, and optimal control of a system such as a communication system, an economy, a crane, and a multi-processor computer.
