The company announced that Boeing has accepted its high-performance camera technology. The 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.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner. It is the company's most fuel-efficient airliner and the world's first major airliner to use composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe. The NDT procedure will help inspectors to verify the integrity of carbon-fiber structures in the airframe.

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