IAI Wins Navy Contract to Develop a NDE Tool to Determine the RUL of Protective Ablative Lining

ROCKVILLE, Md, — Dec. 17, 2019 — Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI), a technology innovation company, announced today that it has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Navy to develop a non-destructive evaluation (NDE) system to determine the remaining useful life (RUL) of a missile systems’ protective ablative lining.

IAI will develop a system to operate on ship using NDE techniques to assess lining conditions and allow extended launcher life beyond current maintenance schedules. IAI will create a platform with a sensor package to assess linings installed in ship structures. Data collected by the platform will be analyzed to determine if installed linings are suitable for continued operation.

IAI conducts research and development into solutions for robotic and handheld platforms that integrate custom sensor packages, machine vision algorithms, and autonomous control methods to maximize performance in the field.

“IAI is proud to have been selected by the Navy to support its research into NDE tools for missile launch systems.” said Vikram Manikonda, President and CEO of IAI.
