 Abstract
This paper presents the development of the automatic safety inspection technique for the ammunition fuzes using radiography images. The technique inspects 49-ammunition fuze by detecting the X-ray or neutron radiographic images to check whether the fuze is unintendedly armed or/and some major assembled parts are at right place. To execute the program, we loads the image(s) for under test. After reading images, the program conducts a series of pre-image processing, and then starts inspecting input images by using the detection algorithms which are designed distinctively for each fuze. After completing the detection process, the program displays the final result of the fuze status: "safety or danger." Through this program, we can cut off the fuzes which have any doubt about safety, and can only provide absolutely safe fuzes, compared with the current naked eye inspection method.
