Abstract:

POST ATTACK AIR BASE RECOVERY OPERATIONS WILL TAKE PLACE IN A VERY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT. WITH PREMIUMS PLACED ON MINIMIZING BOTH THE TIME AND NUMBER OF PERSONNEL REQUIRED WHILE MAXIMIZING PERSONNEL SAFETY, ADAPTATION OF ROBOTIC TECHNOLOGY TO SOME OR ALL OF THE TASK MAKES SENSE. INSTRUMENTATION CAPABLE OF RECOGNIZING, MEASURING AND QUANTIFYING THE DIMENSIONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF A BOMB CRATER IS A NECESSARY PREREQUISITE TO AUTOMATING THE ACTUAL REPAIR PROCESS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE PROBLEM OF MAPPING CRATER DIMENSIONS. A SYSTEM WILL BE DEVELOPED WHICH WILL BE CAPABLE OF DETERMINING THE NATURE AND EXTENT OF CONCRETE UPHEAVAL AS WELL AS THE VOLUME OF OPEN VOID IN THE CRATER. UPON COMPLETION OF THIS PHASE I EFFORT A SENSOR SYSTEM DESIGN WILL BE GENERATED, FOR INTEGRATION WITH THE RRR EXCAVATOR, THAT IS CAPABLE OF DETECTING AND MEASURING BOMB DAMAGE CRATERS IN THE POST ATTACK ENVIRONMENT.
