Abstract
The overall objective of this Phase II research is the development of an automated system capable of obtaining images of potentially corroded airframe components at micron-scale resolution. In Phase I, the research team of Barron Associates, Inc. and its subcontractor, Southwest Research Institute (SWRI), developed a conceptual design for a 3D Corrosion Mapping System (3DCMS) that meets the requirements set forth by the customer. The research team demonstrated the efficacy of key subsystems through laboratory experiments. The Phase II work is proposed in a Base Effort and an Option Effort. The proposed Base Effort is an 18 month program that will result in a functional prototype of the 3DCMS. In the Base Effort, the research team will perform detailed design of the 3DCMS subsystems, construct, test, and integrate the subsystems into a functional 3DCMS prototype for demonstration using true airframe components at a Navy facility. The demonstration will occur near the conclusion of the 18 month Phase II Base Effort and usability feedback will be provided to the proposing team. The six-month Phase II Option Effort will focus on any usability concerns that arise during testing by the Navy and refining the 3DCMS prototype for subsequent commercialization.
