Develop Advanced Inspect Jet Engine Comp

The objective of this research project is to develop advanced inspection techniques for jet engine component and materials to enable the use of new, more fuel efficient engine technologies. Investment in a jet engine technology inspection (JET) program is needed to ensure that the implementations of new materials and design approaches that often are driven very close to the margin of safety by competitiveness do not compromise the excellent safety record developed over the past ten years. Diligence is demanded to ensure that changes in design philosophy, operational approaches, and introduction of new materials and processes, do not compromise public safety in future engine designs.
