Contract: DAAE30-02-C-1038
Award Amount: $69,762.00


"The Army is continually assessing materiel condition in the field through a process that involves manual gaging of components. This process tends to be slow and prone to operator error. Cybernet proposes to implement a reliable rapid non-contact 3D surfaceshape data acquisition system to facilitate this gage measurement. Cybernet proposes the use of a Moir¿ interferometry optical ranging sensor and supporting software for the described application. The Moir¿ interferometry technique suggested for thiseffort uses simple visible light illumination, a fixed field-of-view with no moving parts (save for simple focusing adjustments which are performed once during setup), and has a very fine depth resolution. Cybernet Systems has developed a Moir¿interferometry sensor that has performance capabilities exceeding 1/1000 of an inch. Cybernet's Moir¿ interferometry sensor also has a large field of view for rapid scans of large objects. Furthermore, we will leverage our extensive networking experienceto create a complete system capable of retrieving data from specification databases and remotely updating inventories. The technology developed will be used to inspect manufactured parts for problems as they come off the assembly line. This should allowmanufacturers to improve quality and decrease cost."
