Imperium Inc. (Beltsville, Md.) has introduced the new Acoustocam i600, a lighter, more rugged version of the company’s i500 ultrasound imaging camera for real-time nondestructive inspection (NDI) of composite structures. The new unit features one-tenth the number of its predecessor’s parts at about half its size and one-third the weight. The weight reduction makes it easy for one person to handle (the camera reportedly can be held overhead with minimal effort), making NDI examinations more ergonomically comfortable for the technician. The camera features wireless communications software, which allows it to share ultrasound images over a network with other analysts. The company reports that Boeing Integrated Defense Systems (Philadelphia, Pa.) was the first i600 customer and will use it for field damage assessment of V-22 Osprey aircraft. Additionally, The Boeing Co.’s Seattle operation plans to upgrade to the i600 for the 787 Dreamliner.
