Abstract: Aerospace industry is moving towards more integrated composite structures in order to reduce autoclave cycles and assembly operations, which leads to considerable cost, time and energy savings. However, the main drawback of this approach is that no inspection solution at a reasonable cost is given by ultrasound equipment in the market, because of the geometry complexity and access restrictions to those parts. NUTHIC E! 8929 project (partial financed by Eurostar Program H2020) develop an adaptive and fully automated air-coupled ultrasound inspection system for highly integrated composite components, whose complex geometries and difficult access prevent using state of the art equipment. The goal of this project is to provide the aerospace manufacturing industry with an adaptive and automated non-contact ultrasound inspection solution for highly integrated composite parts This paper presents the final results of the project on multi spar structures, all of these measure with non-contact ultrasound technique, avoiding water coupling and reducing inspection time by integrating the inspection machine into the clean environment of the production line.
