Abstract
A robotic work cell for stripping paint from both large and small aircraft is currently under development at Pratt & Whitney - Waterjet Systems (formerly USBI Co., Advanced Programs). The primary objectives for this system are to reduce the time required to strip an aircraft, improve the quality and consistency of the stripping operation, and reduce the need for environmentally objectionable stripping processes such as chemical methods. One of the keys to the overall success of this automated paint stripping system is the integration of a sensor that will provide for adaptive process control. This sensor must be able to indicate when a layer of paint has been completely stripped from the aircraft, and measure the approximate size of any remaining unstripped patches. The sensor should also be able to indicate when surface roughening is occurring on the material beneath the paint.
