  10. Improved magneto-optic methods for aircraft corrosion detection

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: AF073118

    ABSTRACT: Corrosion under multi-layer structures is a significant problem for the Air Force. The ability to detect this corrosion rapidly over a large area is also very important. The Magneto-Optic Imager (MOI) is an eddy current visualization tool that has been accepted in the market and has demonstrated the ability to rapidly inspect large areas. The principle application of the MOI within t ...
