NDT for Military and Defense
Modern militaries can be found on the land, at sea, and in the air. They are even edging into space. Successfully completing missions in these diverse environments requires sophisticated vehicles and weapon systems that are engineered for survival and outperforming competing platforms. Every part—down to the nuts and bolts holding these platforms together—must meet specifications and perform as expected. That’s where non-destructive testing can help.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) for the military keeps aircraft in the air, ships afloat, and missiles on target. It is what makes the difference between carriers going on deployments or going in for repair. NDT isn’t strictly for the latest military technology and systems. In the service and defense industry, non-destructive testing of military equipment plays a critical role in keeping military forces ready to fight.
These defense systems are subject to a high degree of stress whether they are missile systems, or the jets and naval vessels that launch those systems. A flaw or weak spot caused by corrosion or wear can cause a critical component to fail and damage a serious investment. Non-destructive testing (NDT) for the military and defense industry is an indispensable part of fielding and maintaining these systems.
Non-destructive testing for the military is extensive and essential. It ranges from relatively straightforward such as ultrasonic testing of welds aboard naval vessels to the testing of complex aerospace components that combine metals and composite materials. In either case, the safety of the sailors, soldiers, and airmen who operate these systems depends on regularly performed NDT.
We have been providing ultrasonic and eddy current NDT equipment since 1993. We have provided industry-leading NDT support solutions aiding maintenance and manufacturing for the military and the defense industry that develops military systems.
The reliability of military equipment depends on high-level quality control during manufacturing using NDT. Likewise, the dependability of these systems during both combat exercises and actual combat depends on the rigorous performance of ultrasonic and eddy current testing NDT equipment to ensure components remain within specification, and any replacements as well as repairs are free of flaws.
We takes pride in providing effective and portable non-destructive testing equipment for the military and defense industry. To learn more about NDT for defense, contact us today!
