This paper presents the first available report in the literature of a system aimed at the detection and classification of threats in the vicinity of a long gas pipeline. The system is based on phase-sensitive optical time-domain reflectometry technology for signal acquisition and pattern recognition strategies for threat identification. The system operates in two different modes: 1) machine+activity identification, which outputs the activity being carried out by a certain machine; and 2) threat… CONTINUE READING
