Co-create the future
with a team of global talent.
Co-creation is a powerful force. Every day, the talented people at GE work hard to develop new solutions that drive technology forward. What if you could give us a hand, no matter where you live?
Here are just a few of the projects in the works.
CT Scan Image Compression
CT imagery can be so large that it’s difficult to transfer electronically. And when these scans need to be seen halfway across the world in order to save lives, every second matters. Unfortunately, these transfers can take days. So, how can we make these massive files easier to store and transmit so response times are expedited? Your ideas could truly be a lifesaver.
On-Wing Engine Inspection
Everyone wants their flight to be on time. But making sure the jet is properly inspected also takes time. That’s because jet engine internals are hard to inspect consistently. They have tight spaces and can only be navigated by a borescope, which results in inconsistent lighting, angle, and resolution in images. Do you have better solution than the borescope waiting in the wings?
Detecting Weld Seams
Broken pipes can cause havoc for households and emergencies for wildlife habitats. The problem is, pipe seams can be difficult to detect because they’re not visible to the naked eye. We need to find new ways to inspect pipes during production so we can limit problems from defective welds. Pipe up with your ideas, they could prevent future oil spills.
Measuring Reflective Objects
Flight times get delayed because of inspection times. This happens because the shiny polished surfaces of jet engines reflect light so well that they defy measurements of indications or defects with visible light. So, how do we inspect these hard to reach places more accurately and efficiently? Reflect on this, your future flight time could depend on it.
Big ideas with a small footprint.
Our big secret is actually small: the micro-factory. These brilliant and flexible mixed-use making spaces are designed to inspire collaboration plus facilitate small-batch manufacturing of products coming from the Fuse community.
