The present invention discloses a device and system for magnetographic analysis of mechanical flaws and defects along structures located underwater for example, metallic pipelines, utilizing an autonomous magnetic tomography method (MTM) apparatus based on the inverse magnetostrictive effect for magnetographic identification, in the form of an array of flexible autonomous undersea vehicle (AUV) torpedo constructions of interconnected elements or pods. The array of AUV torpedo constructions are flexibly linked together so that the device can readily navig...
1. A remote, flexible device for integrity management of a Surveyed structure by discovering, identifying and monitoring of mechanical defects in metallic structures using non-contact remote magnetic tomography to sense defects in the metallic structure based on inverse magnetosstrictive (Villari) effect detection techniques: comprising: a. a flexible array in die form of a plurality of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) torpedo construction elements or pods;b. wherein each of foe plurality of AU V elements or pods are connected by rigid links or rigid ...
