The Danish Defence is acquiring an X-ray scanner for integrity control of hard armor plates in military ballistic protection vests. The system and its software shall detect defects that can influence the function and quality of the hard plates. All detected defects shall be classified and documented. The system shall be able to sort the hard plates in two classes: ‘Passed’/‘Not passed’ and shall be a stand alone system that ensures that the inspection of the plates is fully automated.
The hard plates are made of composite materials, fibers like Aramid (KEVLAR), Ultrahigh- molecular- weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE), ceramics like Aluminum Oxide (AD-995), Silicon Carbide (Pure SIC) and Boron Carbide (Reaction Bonded RBB4C) and others.
The system shall provide image documentation highlighting the position and size of the features and shall be able to accommodate batches with several plates.
The system shall be installed and implemented at least six (6) months after contract signing.
