Unique Thickness Gauge for Military Aircraft

NDT Systems developed this one-of-a-kind high precision thickness gauge for military applications. The fighter aircraft community deploys this instrument across the globe at local fighter wing facilities as well as remote or deployed areas. Recently, this capability has been offered to select organizations to perform these safety-of-flight inspections.
