Abstract:

THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES THE DEVELOPMENT OF AN AUTOMATED REAL-TIME FLAW DETECTION SYSTEM FOR EVALUATING HEAT SEALS OF SCIENTIFIC BALLOONS. SEVERAL MEASUREMENT DEVICES WILL BE LABORATORY TESTED FOR THEIR ABILITY TO DISTINGUISH A FLAWED SEAL SAMPLE FROM A GOOD SEA. MEASUREMENT DEVICES UNDER CONSIDERATION ARE PASSIVE THERMAL WAVE DETECTION, THERMAL WAVE THROUGH-TRANSMISSION, AND OPTICAL THROUGH-TRANSMISSION. BASED ON THE TEST RESULTS, THE BEST METHOD FOR OUR APPLICATION WILL BE DETERMINED, THE FEASIBILITY OF FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF THE CONCEPT WILL BE ASSESSED, AND COMPONENTS FOR A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM WILL BE SPECIFIED.
