Development of a Sensor with WIde Spectrum Sensitivity for MOnitoring of Damage and Defects In Composite Structures

Project description

Sensitive miniature camera for detecting damage and defects in aircraft composite structures

Shocks on an aircraft’s composite structure can cause delamination elsewhere on the aircraft. At the moment, the only way to detect delamination is through regular inspections that require the aircraft to be immobilised. To address this lack of efficient diagnostic tools, the EU-funded SWISSMODICS project aims to develop a miniature, ultra-thin camera that can be incorporated in the aircraft’s composite structure where there is a delamination risk. The camera, which will be sensitive to X-rays as well as visible and infrared light, will make diagnostics easier, reduce immobilisation time and allow in-flight diagnostics. The project will provide a breakthrough in the non-destructive testing of aircraft.
