Title: High Energy X-Ray Stereo-Radioscopic System
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $52,394.00


The proposed Phase I program will result in a demonstration of three-dimensional imaging with images taken with the existing high energy x-ray inspection systems at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Ground. These images will be processed so they can be presented as prompt-response stereo television images. In addition, the capability to measure defect dimensions using a cursor-prompted software program will be evaluated. The modifications that will be needed to make the Yuma x-ray inspection system into one with stereo/three dimensional capability will be determined so that those modifications can proceed in a Phase II program. This realistic program is proposed by a small, high technology company with broad experience in x-ray imaging and with specific prior experience with a stereo, real-time microradiographic imaging system. Differences described here include high energy x-ray inspection, additional image processing to reduce image unsharpness, probable object rotation instead of electronic source movement to generate stereo views, near real-time imaging capability and system modification instead of a complete stereo system.
