Using Drones To Assess Subsurface Damage In Aircraft Materials

This research investigates the potential of using drones to inspect subsurface damage in composite aircraft materials. We develop a proof-of-concept remote line scan thermography capability in order to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential of such a system. A novel form of thermographic processing is developed and applied to detect subsurface damage on carbon fiber composite structures. This study suggests the viability of a drone-based thermography technology for the rapid and automated inspection of composite aircraft materials and paves the way...
