Project Announcement: Advanced Real-Time Weld Assessment

The U.S. Navy is partnering with industry and academia to demonstrate a real-time weld quality monitoring approach that can reliably identify when a defect is forming in a weld. Acoustic sensors with narrow band optical sensors will gather data to improve weld diagnostic capability accuracy.
