Veracity Launches Remote Internet-Based Non-Destructive Inspection Technology

TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Veracity Technology Solutions, an AGC Aerospace & Defense company, has successfully completed testing and a demonstration of its proprietary, remotely operated Ultrasonic Tomographic Imaging System, a non-destructive inspection (NDI) capability.

“Our Level III Engineer controlled the automatic scanner, ultrasonic, and three-dimensional reconstruction software from Florida, while the system was set up in a facility in Oklahoma.”

Veracity’s system allows technicians to detect anomalies on both production and in-service composite and metal components from a remote location. Using this method, companies can reduce costs and assembly time by eliminating the need to ship components to an independent inspection facility. Customers can reduce downtime by applying this system in the field and assessing the condition and potential repairs required before an item, such as an aircraft, arrives at a maintenance facility. Additionally, implementing this system can compress development cycle time.

“As engineering teams incorporate design and manufacturing changes in various components, they need to be able to immediately assess the integrity of the component before moving forward,” stated Gary Hensley, President of Veracity. “No longer is NDI a bottleneck. We’re able to offer customers a solution which speeds the time to production.”

With Veracity’s proprietary process, an NDI technician can direct both the motion controlled transducer and ultrasonic system using a standard Internet connection. The offsite technician can capture the data and then immediately analyze the structural integrity of the inspected pieces and provide all necessary documents indicating a completed inspection.

“Through the demonstration we proved that ultrasonic inspections can be accomplished remotely,” commented Kevin McKinley, Vice President at Veracity. “Our Level III Engineer controlled the automatic scanner, ultrasonic, and three-dimensional reconstruction software from Florida, while the system was set up in a facility in Oklahoma.”

The Veracity remote automated inspection system can be customized based on each customer’s unique requirements. The system can be installed anywhere in the world and the data can be viewed by multiple users at different locations during the inspections process.
