AEDC Spark Tank: Imager enhances leak detection, electrical inspection capabilities

Wayne Horton, ultrasound lead at Arnold Air Force Base, Tenn., right, looks on as Robert Hastings, an electrician at Arnold AFB, uses a recently-acquired acoustic imager to check equipment near the J-4 test facility at Arnold for leaks May 26, 2023. The imager can identify leaks in compressed air, gas and vacuum systems, and allows users to see the exact location of a leak on a digital image displayed on the device. It can also determine the distance, size and decibel level of a leak. The imager was one of seven projects that received funding through the 2023 AEDC Spark Tank program, which allows members of the AEDC workforce to propose suggestions for improving AEDC processes, products and test capabilities.
