Fiber optics was not something that Dennis O’Leary, Founder and CEO of DarkPulse Technologies, had in mind for a startup, but he found the opportunity to commercialize a technology while working at a university. DarkPulse offers fiber optics sensor technology to monitor oil, gas and mining for safety and security systems. For example, its distributed sensing can monitor an oil rig and its status and help prevent catastrophic disasters like what happened with BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
Dennis shared with us his story of getting into the fiber optics industry, raising capital and entrepreneurship, which he referred to as “a disease that you cannot stop.”
