Vappro GBSS

Vappro GBSS (Gun Barrel Surface Scanner)

The patented Vappro gun barrel surface scanner ( Vappro GBSS) will capture detailed information of any fouling, nicks, pitting, scourge, rifling-lifted, corrosion, major blemishes, heat-cracking, and erosion or excessive wear of the surface of the Howitzer Gun Barrel and its exact location in the laptop computer.

The bore of the gun barrel needs to be inspected quarterly for “Fit for Firing” in accordance with the Preventive Maintenance and Corrective Serviceability instructions that have been adopted by the armed forces worldwide.

Inspection of the gun barrel surface has always been a tedious task for soldiers. The current visual inspection is not effective because the inaccessible center portion of the barrel does not provide sufficient light to complete a comprehensive inspection. It is important the condition of the entire surface of the gun barrel is documented during the inspection.

Therefore a suitable and effective device is extremely important to detect the exact location of the obstruction or defect in the gun barrel so it can be documented on the computer during the inspection.
