The SonicScan project aims at developing NDT methods based on ultrasonic testing that are suitable for primary structural parts. The main challenge is the compact shape of the parts and their high thickness. To address this problem the project builds upon the sampling phased array technology that allows the tomographic inspection of parts and combine it with a robotic handling system to move the sensor across the part.
