Development of a Structural Damage Assessment System (MSC P5004)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The product of the SBIR program outlined in this proposal is a damage assessment system designed to quickly provide data on the health of a composite structure. Emphasis is placed on development of a structural damage assessment system (SDAS) that enables integration of various NDE techniques with specialty health assessment software for composite materials via a wireless connection. The concept integrates traditional and emerging wide-area inspection techniques with specialty analysis software using a wireless based device that processes the information and returns the health assessment. The Phase I program will establish the feasibility of a SDAS system by conducting laboratory scale inspections of composite panels, demonstrating wireless data transfer and integration with special purpose analysis routines required to quantify damage.
