Corrosion of equipment and material costs the Armed Forces billions of dollars each year. A need currently exists for a cost-effective nondestructive inspection tool able to detect corrosion within military equipment. Dual-Energy Radiography was proposed as a potential NDE corrosion inspection method. A program was undertaken to construct a preprototype dual- energy scan system. An effective dual-energy detector system was designed and fabricated, dual-energy software was coded, and a complete dual-energy system also capable of laminography was constructed. The results of this program are a fully operational preprototype Dual-EnergyLaminography system.
