NineSigma, representing the General Electric Company, is accepting entries for its Inspection Technologies Challenge through February 24. This challenge is designed to find technologies, processes or approaches that can greatly increase the speed and accuracy of aviation parts inspection and greatly increase manufacturing efficiency.

Participants will compete for as many of three cash prizes of $15,000. Winning respondents who enter into a joint development agreement with GE will be awarded a $35,000 development grant to collaborate with GE to develop proposed solutions.

For this challenge, participants are asked to demonstrate their abilities by inspecting a Victorinox 4 inch paring knife instead of actual high-precision aircraft parts.
