Camera Encoded Phased Array for Semi-Automated Inspection of Complex Composite Components

This paper introduces a new wireless solution that permits performing accurate and traceable ultrasonic scans of components with complex geometries using a hand-held scanner. The system integrates an array of 3D cameras that track the position of the hand of the inspector with a high-performance PAUT instrument to provide accurate, high-resolution C-Scans on any component. This paper provides results of hand-held scans on complex composite parts, and explores how the solution compares with traditional semi-automatic and automatic systems in terms of setup, ease-of-use, performance, productivity, and cost.
