Paper Abstract

A fiber optic sensor for determining the type and condition of aircraft coatings was originally developed to provide adaptive control of automated coating removal. The sensor, based on analysis of optical reflectance spectra, has also been found useful for determining the condition of other materials. Investigations have shown that artificial neural networks can be trained to recognize specific materials or material conditions from the sensor signals.
