Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF A REMOTE LONG TUBE INSPECTION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED. THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT ARE TO EVALUATE VARIOUS CONCEPTS CAPABLE OF INSPECTING THE TUBE SURFACE AND REMOVING FOREIGN OBJECTS AND TO SELECT THE MOST PROMISING TECHNIQUES FOR DEVELOPMENT INTO A REMOTE INSPECTION SYSTEM. THE OBJECTIVE OF PHASE I IS TO DEVELOP A CONCEPTUAL SYSTEM DESIGN. THIS PHASE WILL ENTAIL DETERMINING THE SPECIFIC EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS, CONCEPTUALLY DESIGNING A PROTOTYPE SYSTEM, AND EVALUATING THE MOST PROMISING INSPECTION TECHNIQUES. BASED ON PHASE I RESULTS, A PHASE II DEVELOPMENT EFFORT WILL BE PURSUED WITH THE GOAL OF DEVELOPING A PROTOTYPE REMOTE LONG TUBE INSPECTION SYSTEM.
