ABSTRACT

Volpe Center Highlights [September/October 2002]   [open pdf - 5MB]

The focus of this issue of "Highlights" is "Supporting the Office of Pipeline Safety." From the newsletter: "Information technology has become critical to pipeline safety and security. Currently, a Volpe team is working on a knowledge-based, decision-support system that will allow OPS to leverage its resources to ensure safer pipeline distribution systems. The Center is also developing data analysis and information management strategies to enhance OPS's trend analysis and proactive information management. Advances in remote management, wireless computing, open systems, and Internet technology now make many key pipeline facilities, such as control centers, more vulnerable to cyber attack. Accordingly, the Center has identified near-term technology that can effectively enhance deterrence, detection, response, and recovery. Other pipeline safety work has included analytical and technical support, including cost-benefit analyses related to regulatory changes and background studies on safety issues."
