Abstract
The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an infrared radiation detection system to accurately measure the thickness of marine paint as it is being applied. The measurement will be used to control ship automated paint application systems. The proposed measurement technique is robust and will allow the system to be constructed from inexpensive, off-the-shelf fiber optic components.
