We propose and experimentally demonstrate a method for extension of measurement range in a Brillouin optical correlation domain analysis sensor system without resolution deterioration. In the experiment, a 300 m measurement range with about 8 cm spatial resolution was successfully obtained by cascading three different kinds of fibers as a sensing element.
