Abstract
Coherix will proceed to define in detail, design, develop, construct, deliver, install and support a Holomapper-C prototype system for mapping of a variety of curved naval equipment surfaces at the micron and sub-micron level of resolution to detect and measure corrosion effects and other similar 3-dimensional surface effects. Reports and training will be delivered. In the Phase II option period, a commercialization plan and any required refinements of packaging, operator interactions and functional details will be performed.The proposed prototype system will be usable in maintenance depot environment to enable relatively rapid, productive and accurate measurement of the 3-dimensional surface characteristics of internal and external curved surfaces of parts of Navy systems, primarily expected to be parts of Naval aircraft landing gear assemblies, arrestor shanks and the like. System design and construction emphasis will be placed on minimizing the overall measurement time for any given surface, measurement accuracy and the associated ease-of-use of the system in realistic operating conditions. Internal curved surfaces of parts, such as arrestor shanks with inside diameters as small as 1 inch (25 mm) and some degree of internal axial curvature (non-straightness) will be accommodated. The design will anticipate that part surfaces as long as 8 feet in length may need to be measured.
