Imperium, Inc. Announces Joint Project with BOEING for Wireless Remote Expert Inspection
Ultrasound Imaging Camera Allows for Remote Simple Monitoring of Composite Damage in Real-Time
02-09-2009 – SILVER SPRING, MD - Imperium, Inc., the developer of the world’s only portable ultrasound imaging camera, the AcoustoCam™, announced today a method that will allow maintenance experts to remotely inspect and review composite structures located at another facility in real-time.
The project, which has been developed in collaboration with Boeing [NYSE: BA] engineers, will allow maintenance personnel to use Imperium’s AcoustoCam to quickly survey damage without having to bring in harder to set up, conventional ultrasound equipment – all from remote locations.
The AcoustoCam is a hand-held device that may be used as part of quick survey of suspected damage areas. The device shows subsurface defects that cannot be seen visually. The user simply places a probe against the aircraft structure and with proper equipment setup, subsurface defects appear on a handheld monitor in real time. The advantage of the remote operator interface is that the expert NDE operator may be remotely situated.
Imperium is the sole provider of the AcoustoCam, an ultrasound camera that is potentially more understandable, useable, and affordable than anything like it currently on the market.
