Abstract

A special purpose robot to remove corrosion from the interior surfaces of the ductwork in AEDC's Engine Test Facility (ETF) will be designed and developed. The robot willimplemnt the Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) process which alloys the interior surface of the ductwork with a chromimum compound. The system will include a remotely operated robot capable of traversing the ETF ductwork, fiber optic system for focusing and scanning the energy from a remote YAG laser onto the interior surface of the ETF ductwork, a delivery system for the alloying compound, and an instrumentation package to facilitate precise control of the robotic system.
