High-energy Computed Tomographic Inspection of Munitions

This is a technical overview showing the application of using advanced computed tomography for the inspection of munitions and weapons systems. Although computed tomography cannot produce full-rate production throughput, the quality assurance it can provide on research and development components, reverse engineering, and malfunction investigations is unmatched. Using computed tomography within the Department of Defense is highly beneficial to ensure the end products function correctly and are effective.
