Abstract
This SBIR Phase I project proposal addresses the development of technology for cost effectively upgrading existing shipyard panel line stiffener-to-plate welding to a low-distortion hybrid laser process. The Phase I project establishes the technical and financial viability of the Laser/Gas Metal Arc Welding (LGMAW) process to manufacture flat panel assemblies. A major task in Phase I is the demonstration of a welding system capable of being retro-0fit into existing shipyard panel line production systems without great impact and expense. In addition, Phase I activities will encompass the analysis of the market potential for such a system.
