INDeT (Completed Project)

[su_tabs][su_tab title=”About”]

INDeT (Integration of Non-Destructive Testing) is funded under the EU Growth initiative. The overall objective of the project is to give the aerospace industry the benefit of new powerful and economic tools offered by the ICT sector for the development and improvement of non-destructive inspection methods in production and maintenance. This should result in cost-savings for both manufacturers and airlines, increasing the efficiency and reliability of the diagnoses and guaranteeing higher levels of safety. The IDC collaborating on this project with a range of European partners working in aerospace (Airbus, EADS, Dassault Aviation), IT (Alenia, Tecnatom, Inteltec) and academia (University of Central Lancashire, FHF Furtwangen, ISTI). There are three IDC postgraduate students working on INDeT, Edward Dixon, Terence Hickey and Stephen Hurley – with backgrounds in Computer Science, Electronics Manufacturing and Computer Engineering. There is also a fourth postgraduate, Nicholas Rooney working on INDeT from the Aeronautical Engineering Dept. The project is being supervised by Liam Bannon, Mikael Fernstrom and Trevor Young.

Duration: 1 June, 2001 -> 1 June, 2004
