AIM Networking Concept
The future open manufacturing concept for the AIM unit includes
networking AIM instruments across USAF (AFSC, ALCs, & AFRL). Once
networked with other COEs the diagnostic tool will enable collaborative
sharing of expertise and data.
The ultimate goal of transitioning this technology is to improve the
efficiency of the coating process by facilitating real time access to large
pools of data from spray coatings and application methods.
Commercialization represents a major success for both AFRL and the
ALC’s, as the concept has evolved from the original Robo-Met.3D®
microstructural characterization tool used in laboratories to a broadly
applicable high-throughput coating quality analysis tool usable on the
production floor.

Summary
Bottom Line
Adding an AIM unit to the DoD MetLab
evaluation and certification process replaces
manual steps with semi-automated functions
thus reducing time while increasing data
standardization in the decision process
