Paper Abstract

An optical triangulation technique (D Sight) for high speed inspection of aging aircraft for lap joint corrosion is presented. Specific examples of using D Sight equipment on aircraft structures are presented along with comparisons to other NDE methods. The specific advantages of this technique are rapid inspection, high sensitivity, and computer based record keeping for future reference.
