Abstract
AbstractNondestructive Evaluation and Inspection (NDE/I) methods, procedures, and enabling technologies generally provide means to nondestructively scan, image, sense, or otherwise evaluate characteristics of, or detect minute flaws/defects in, materials and/or component parts. These capabilities have become essential to help assure structural and functional integrity, safety, and cost effective sustainment of Air Force systems, during both initial manufacture and operational service. As the average age of planes in a fleet rises, sometimes to beyond the design life, the importance of using NDE/I to detect structural damage before it advances to structural failure is increasing. The long term vision of this proposal is the development of a scalable, extensible suite of software tools to capture, review and archive depot level NDI data. Furthermore, this suite should leverage non-proprietary standard data formats for information storage and transmittal to insure that the Air Force is not locked into a proprietary solution
