Abstract
Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as originally intended. b. Further develop automated defect recognition software to the point where it can function reliably with the detection system. c. Conduct field tests and demonstrations of the system to verify performance. d. Further refine the system toward producing the final product, as envisioned in the original SBIR topic solicitation.
