AbstractThe objective of this proposal is to develop a robust hand-held, data acquisition system for microwave inspection of non-metallic armor on ground vehicles. The system will em-ploy the patented Evisive Scan microwave interference testing method has been dem-onstrated in a portable, work station configuration on armor panels from the Stryker and ASV vehicles. The Evisive Scan method detects laminar features such as disbonding of the armor structure as well as cracks in ceramic tiles. The Evisive Scan method permits real time evaluation by inspection from one surface only, through non-contacting or con-tact encapsulation.
