Abstract
A novel method to enhance the positioning resolution of distributed disturbance fiber sensor is proposed in this paper. The proposed scheme combines a high speed data acquisition system and a modified time delay estimate algorithm. The sensor performance is significantly improved by eliminating the impact of fluctuation of the interference signal generated by the environment disturbance. Theoretical analysis shows that with the proposed spatial resolution enhanced method, the disturbance sensing system is more suitable for various environments and provides low uncertainty in long term operation with meter-scale spatial resolution. Compared with the traditional time delay estimate method in distributed disturbance sensing system based on the criterion of spatial resolution, the positioning error of the sensor using our proposed method has been reduced at least an order of magnitude.
