New Era for Frauscher

Frauscher has transferred its Fibre Optic Sensing (FOS) activities to a separate company – and relaunched the entire corporate brand. The transformation from a signalling technology company into two tech-companies becomes clearly visible: Frauscher and Sensonic have a clear focus on their core competencies and are ready for the future.

Company Foundation Sensonic

The Sensonic team focuses on solutions that will revolutionise the way railways operate their networks. As a spin-off, the company will pursue a completely new business model. Sensonic is the pioneer in Fibre Optic Sensing (FOS) for railways and the first company in the industry to offer complete, area-wide tracking and monitoring solutions based on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS). Through an open platform, this state-of-the-art technology delivers data for a variety of railway applications. The basis for this is real-time information from continuous train tracking, asset condition monitoring, as well as from infrastructure surveillance. On that base, Sensonic is paving the way for a revolution in railway operations to increase efficiency and significantly reduce costs.
