Imperium Inc. (Silver Spring, Md.), developer of the Acoustocam portable ultrasound imaging camera, announced on May 12 that Air Dynamics (Baie D'urfé, Quebec, Canada), a supplier of industrial equipment to the aerospace industry, will resell the Acoustocam to its U.S., U.K. and Canadian customers for inspection and maintenance of composite and other structures.

The Acoustocam is a handheld device that may be used as part of quick survey of suspected damage areas on composite structures. The device shows subsurface composite defects that cannot be seen visually. The user simply places a probe against the aircraft structure and with proper equipment setup, subsurface composite defects appear on a handheld monitor in real time.

"The time and cost savings from using a handheld device that can immediately provide results is going to change the way our customers conduct routine maintenance and equipment inspection," said Bruce Truesdale, founder and president of Air Dynamics. "Our customers are going to benefit instantly from using the Acoustocam for these important and necessary processes, including post-accident inspections."

"Air Dynamics is a very exciting partner for us with their vast customer base that we believe will benefit tremendously from our ultrasound imaging technology," said Bob Lasser, president of Imperium. "We continue to expand globally with partners such as Air Dynamics, and look forward to a long and growing relationship with them."
