DolphiTech AS (Raufoss, Norway) reported on April 30 that The Boeing Co. (Chicago, Ill., USA) has accepted DolphiTech's high-performance camera technology – DolphiCam. The new, flexible system can now be used in the non-destructive testing (NDT) of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s carbon fiber airframe.

Boeing has incorporated a procedure for the DolphiCam CF08 ultrasound camera system in its NDT manual for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The procedure enables the use of DolphiCam for the field-testing of the Dreamliner’s carbon-fiber fuselage structure.

"We are thrilled to have the DolphiCam included in the 787 NDT manual," says Dag Rønsen, CEO of DolphiTech. "With more than 120 Boeing 787s flying today, and over 1,000 on order this is a huge opportunity for us. And equally important – since our technology has been scrutinized and accepted by Boeing – it sends a loud and clear signal to aircraft manufacturers and MROs alike: DolphiCam can handle the toughest industry requirements, and all at an extremely competitive cost."

Using unique matrix transducer technology, the DolphiCam system is portable, user-friendly and provides 2-D and 3-D images of internal structures in modern, lightweight materials.
