This is not a bid solicitation, and no contract will result from this Request for Information (RFI).
The issuance of this RFI does not create an obligation for Canada to issue a subsequent

Respondents are asked to identify if their response, or any part of their response, is subject to the Controlled Goods Regulations.
Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) currently has a requirement to develop, validate and deliver a portable advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) system. The system will need to detect and measure physical corrosion wastage (e.g., cracks, thinning, pitting) and metallurgical disparities (e.g., welding) on the surface of 10-35mm thick HY80 steel plates, without the removal of thick overlayers (from 10-35mm liftoff). Overlayers are non-conductive materials that vary in thickness and may include corrosion products, paints/coatings, adhesives, rubber and thermal insulation.
The intent of this RFI is to solicit information from industry, focusing on portable detection of corrosion wastage. In particular, research and development efforts are currently under way to identify commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) NDT technologies, and to develop advanced NDT technologies that allow for the detection of corrosion wastage at large liftoff. One technology, pulsed eddy current, shows promise for measuring corrosion wastage, but other technologies (e.g., electromagnetic, ultrasonic, acoustic, x-ray, etc.) shall be considered as well.
