Abstract:

Handheld nondestructive evaluation NDE probes are widely used in the aerospace community Data acquired manually are less reliable than data acquired by automated methods. The use of handheld NDE probes could be significantly facilitated by a versatile device designed to remotely sense the spatial position of the probe each time a data point is acquired. Such a device, which will be referred to as an automatic position locator APL, is currently under development and will be described in this report.
