ABS Consulting Offers Ultrasonic Testing Technology Developed for NASA to Offshore Assets

March 08 (2021

ABSG Consulting Inc. (ABS Consulting) has signed an exclusive global licensing agreement to offer an innovative ultrasonic non-destructive testing (NDT) solution that supports the expanded use of composite materials on offshore assets to extend service life.

Developed to test the heat shield on the Orion space capsule, this is the first proven nondestructive evaluation (NDE) technology that can successfully scan layered composite material for defects, offering unprecedented visibility into the integrity of these materials.

The advanced technology, developed by The Aerospace Corporation (Aerospace) for NASA, will assist the offshore industry with corrosion repair and enhance mitigation strategies to support the structural integrity of new and aging assets. Previously, owners and operators were limited to temporary non-structural composite patch repair systems because there was no accurate way to test for defects. Now, composites can replace traditional steel repairs; benefits include a natural resistance to offshore environments, minimal weight added to floating assets and the elimination of hot work permits during operations.

Through the licensing agreement, ABS Consulting is working with global leaders in composite repair and offshore clients to further develop the technology for new and expanded applications in the offshore industry.
