• The Center for Aviation Systems Reliability (CASR) was established in 1990
    to provide results that address the inspection needs of commercial aviation
    and lead to safety improvements through their implementation

  • In September 2001, CASR partnered with industry to begin a new
    research program entitled Engineering Assessment of Fluorescent
    Penetrant Inspection.

  • This website was established to document the results of this and other
    Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) -funded programs working to improve the reliability of the Fluorescent Penetrant Inspection (FPI) process.
