The start of FOSREM project began in Agust 2011. The Military University od Technology and m-Soft Sp. z o. o. signed an consortium agreement. The goal of the consortium is to develop a supersensitive rotational motion sensors.
We outline the development and the application in a field test of the Autonomous Fibre-Optic Rotational Seismograph (AFORS), which utilizes the Sagnac effect for a direct measurement of the seismic-origin rotations of the ground. The main advantage of AFORS is its complete insensitivity to linear motions, as well as a direct measurement of rotational components emitted during seismic events.
