Abstract
Imperium, along with Bell Helicopter and Boeing, are proposing a small, portable ultrasound camera for real time imaging of subsurface defects in composites. This device, based around a unique ultrasound imaging array, can generate C-scans in real time of subsurface defects. This allows for a non-specialized user to find defects immediately. This camera will allow a non-specialized user to quickly find defects. Little training will be required and it can be made at a low cost.
