Abstract
ABSTRACT: During the Phase II program Control Vision, Inc. and its partners will have developed and tested an In-Situ, Real-Time optical sensor suite for measuring the physical properties of thermal sprayed gas turbine engine coatings. This sensor suite will be a major step forward in the production of more reliable, lower cost, thermal-sprayed, gas turbine engine coatings. Eventually the sensor suite will be a key component of the overall strategy of supporting the continued effort to develop more powerful and fuel efficient gas turbine engines by producing Prime Reliant coatings for the military and commercial gas turbine engine industries. BENEFIT: Benefit 1: Improve the efficiency of thermal spray processes by providing in-situ, real-time feedback on the process, and Benefit 2: Improve confidence in thermal spray coatings, allowing gas turbine engine designers to design to a coating specification to facilitate improvements in the efficiency and power of gas turbine engine in the future.
