Wireless Probes for Non-Destructive Evaluation
The goal of this project is create a wireless NDE probe for on-wing inspections of aircraft engines. This probe will simplify the inspection process by eliminating wires that may snag on fan blades within an aircraft engine. The project is quite challenging due to a high degree of multipath within the engine. Dual frequency channel communications systems will be used to minimize the effects of multipath nulls.
