Wireless Armor Condition Monitoring Tool

Filed under: Recent Projects.

Description:

Composite armor containing advanced ceramic material tiles is an important part of advanced armored vehicle design. Evisive Scan microwave interference scanning method can image this complex, structured material with access from one surface only, without contact, through contacting and no-contacting dielectric layers. This is a desirable method for condition monitoring of ceramic armor at maintenance depots and in the field. Under an Army SBIR A082-144 Phase I contract, Evisive is optimizing the wireless, hand-held scanner design for field use and depot use in refurbishing vehicles with ceramic armor.

Summary:

Evisive is developing prototype wireless, hand-held equipment for nondestructive testing of complex ceramic armor and the depot and in the field. The Evisive Scan method is well suited to the limited access inspection environment and detection of both cracked ceramic tile and delamination of armor structure sub-elements. Evisive Scan developing, testing and qualifying systems for in-situ condition assessment. This project will produce a robust, very portable, hand-held, wireless system which extends the flexibility of the equipment application in the field environment.
