Defence equipment is exposed to high stress levels and the dolphicam2 provides reliable testing of military kit to keeping military forces safe and able to perform.
Non-destructive testing for the military is essential. It can range from straight forward NDT such as ultrasonic testing of metals aboard naval vessels to the testing of complex aerospace components that combine metals and composite materials. In all cases, the main priority is to ensure equipment is built and maintained to the highest safety and performance standards.
Understanding the extent of damage caused by sudden impacts, extreme environments and extensive use, is crucial to ensuring the safety and integrity of vital air, sea and land assets. Ultrasonic testing is an ideal choice for performing inspections when there is a requirement to locate voids, cracks, laminations, and measure the remaining thickness. Many equipment materials used are subject to structural changes due to the operating environment, and so it is important that structural integrity is not compromised. Our flagship technology platform, dolphicam2, specialises in accurate, high-resolution, analysis-ready digital visualisations for the non-destructive testing of these materials while being easy to mobilise and use in even the most challenging of locations.
A leading aviation Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul company provided dolphitech with a trailing edge section from the elevator of an Airbus A330/A340. The skins were CFRP laminates, with a Nomex honeycomb core.Read the full capability study
Due to the demanding environment military components or structures are exposed to, quality assurance is paramount, as is the ability to re-inspect at service intervals to ensure the continued integrity. The dolphicam2 provides one platform with the most advanced technology, enabling a simple way to perform inspection across all materials.
Dolphicam2 requires minimal training to operate the platform; enabling your boots on the ground to inspect, visualise and quantify specific inspections on assets at any time and any location. Each dolphicam2 system is supplied ready to use in a lightweight, portable pelicase, easy to pack, easy to deploy, easy to carry to the inspection site.
