Fiber Optics for Mining Applications

Fiber Optics for MiningIncreased safety requirements and the competitive nature of natural resources recovery has greatly increased the demand for reliable communications in harsh mine environments. This new training program was developed to address the challenges of deploying and maintaining fiber optic networks in harsh mine environments in order to improve employee safety, provide reliable communications, improve and measure process efficiency, and provide continuous monitoring and analysis of the hazardous environments.

The content structure is tailored to the unique environment and applications of underground, open pit, and strip mines, and will provide the knowledge and skill sets required for those designing, installing, and maintaining fiber optic communication systems in harsh mine environments.
