Ultrasonic Thickness Measurement (UTM) Arm Development
This project will develop a pneumatic arm for mounting on a carbon fiber caged confined space drone. The RPAS will be capable of flying with the pneumatic arm in a retracted position or hovering with it in an extended position. Further, an UTM gauge mounted on the arm will be safely within the cage. Once the desired surface is reached, the RPAS hovers at a safe and constant distance from the surface and the pneumatic arm extends, allowing the UTM gauge to measure the targeted surface.
