Paper Abstract

This paper describes an integrated nondestructive inspection framework that has been developed, under DARPA sponsorship, to meet the joint needs of optical design, high quality manufacturing and operational integrity monitoring that is both pragmatic and affordable. These needs stem form fiscal and regulatory drivers that mandate affordable hazard analysis and risk mitigation in both commercial and defense sectors. The framework features standardization of data formats for easy data exchange, automated data processing via the Internet, geographically remote data archiving and killer application interconnects, all tied in to user tailored conventional workstation interfaces. The effectiveness of this framework is demonstrated by an exemplar that is based on investment casing of gas turbine blades exploiting x-ray CT inspection, reverse CAD image processing and multimodal data fusion.
