The goal of this project is to identify current and emerging technologies employed in Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) of coated surfaces, benchmark the detection limits and resolution, and demonstrate the technology in a field environment. The costing systems include both industrial and military coatings. A further objective will be to determine coating formulation techniques that can enhance the detection or resolution of these technologies. The project will survey available technologies, assess capabilities, and limitations, and determine TRL and MRL for a given technology.
Those interested in participating in this project should contact Lisa Stobierski by November 15, 2017. We encourage participation of Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs), including Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).
