Paper Abstract

The development of a field portable infrared inspection system, complete with infrared imager, data recording, digital image processing and analysis, and heat source for introduction of a thermal gradient, is described. The system provides excellent portability with minimal reliance on on-site electric power while maintaining excellent sensitivity to a variety of defects in typical U.S. Army composite structures. The portable system has demonstrated considerable flexibility in the nondestructive evaluation of a diverse assortment of composite structures for both aircraft and ground vehicle applications.
