DARPA Advances Gamma Ray Inspection with GRIT Program
Posted: 2019-8-5X-rays and gamma rays have a wide range of applications including scanning suspicious maritime shipping containers for illicit materials, industrial inspection of materials and processes, and medical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Current technologies, however, are not ideal. X-rays produce a continuum of energies that limit their inspection and diagnostic performance, and gamma rays can only be produced at specific energies unique to a given radioactive isotope.
DARPA today announced its Gamma R...Read More.

GPR Leads the Way for DOT Highway Inspection
Posted: 2019-7-23The average driver can usually see when pavement deterioration becomes problematic—there will be tearing or rutting on the surface of the road or cracking in wheel paths that decreases safety on the roadway. Underneath the surface of the pavement, however, the signs of deterioration existed long before they were visible and experienced by drivers. Delamination between asphalt layers underneath the surface of pavement is often due to layer debonding or stripping, which typically is not visible, especially in...Read More.
Mitsubishi Develops Explosion Proof Inspection Robot
Posted: 2019-7-23Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) has conducted a running test of the prototype EX ROVR, a plant inspection robot with explosion protection features to limit the danger of the robot itself igniting an explosion or fire from electric sparks or heat, even in areas with flammable gas. The test was conducted jointly with JXTG Nippon Oil & Energy Corporation at its Mizushima Refinery in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture.
During the test, the EX ROVR moved autonomously through several floors of the narrow pl...Read More.
