EADS’ Innovation Works and DolphiTech Signs a Cooperation Agreement for the Development of a New Nondestructive Testing (NDT) System for Composite Inspection

Oct 15 2012

Aerospace and defence group EADS’ Innovation Works research and technology network has signed a cooperation agreement with Norway-based DolphiTech for the development of a new nondestructive testing (NDT) system based on an ultrasonic camera component used for composite inspection. The cooperation agreement was signed in December 2011 and the first version of this system onto the market is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2013. DolphiTech believes the aerospace industry, which is rapidly increasing its use of carbon-fiber composite materials in the design of aero planes, will benefit greatly from using the product. NDT testing plays a critical role in the aero- space industry, where components are designed to be as light as possible, while continuing to perform their task. This makes NDT an essential part of the process, states DolphiTech. EADS NDT specialist Martin Bach explains that the new system will speed up NDT procedures in manufacturing and maintenance and will help users save money and time. “The adaptation of our novel ultrasound technology for impact assessment by EADS Innovation Works will open an attractive global market for our technology.
