AbstractEarly detection of corrosion and its severity can help control corrosion initiated failures in wheeled vehicles and aviation assets. Although preventive maintenance and periodic inspections are required to minimize cost of corrosion these routine inspections are limited to external areas and can be subjective. Based on Phase I results, we will develop a prototype corrosion sensor system that is low cost, requires no upkeep, and is able to remotely monitor the onset of corrosion and its severity in inaccessible areas. The prototype will include an array of sensors that will be continuosly monitoring with the goal to minimize excess corrosion related maintenance and inspection. Finally, the prototype will be tested in the laboratory and in the field to evaluate its efficacy, reliability and to develop a methodology for maintenance.
