A simple sensor system designed to monitor the temperature or strain of a certain number of critical points along a structure is presented and demonstrated. It is based on the remote interrogation of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) placed in series by means of a Brillouin fiber laser. Three FBGs were interrogated 50 km from the processing unit using 8 mW of Brillouin pump. Heterodyne detection brings forth a signal-to-noise ratio of approximately 40 dB in our measurements.
