NDE data fusion methodologies and algorithms were refined and implemented under this program and have been packaged and delivered to the Air Force in a visually programmable, object oriented application builder software package entitled INDERS 3. An important functional element of this package is the ability to integrate part geometry models with associated NDT data. Three case studies were selected and conducted during the development of the package. The first case study applies to the development of a low cost manufacturing process for the Joint Strike Fighter composite wingbox. The second case study examined the effect on radar performance of maintenance and repair of the E-3 AWACS radome. The third case study applied to evaluation of B1-B weapons bay doors for in service damage. The package was implemented on a purchased Silicon Graphics workstation which was used for the case studies and was delivered to the Air Force at the conclusion of the contract. The results of the effort were presented to both industry and Air Force personnel in a series of meetings, demonstrations, and software installations.
