Paper Abstract

An alternative to conventional computed tomography (CT) inspection of solid rocket motor (SRM) component bondlines provides high radial resolution at critical bondlines for large SRM components. By concentrating measurement, computation, and radial resolution at the periphery of the test specimen, this new technique promises to improve bondline anomaly detection by approximately a factor of ten. This technology and a project to demonstrate it in a full-scale implementation using a variety of real-time radiography (RTR) acquisition devices and test articles are discussed.
