Client: Defense Contractor

Technology: Ultrasonic Testing UT

Transmission inspection technique


The client part was a laminated composite vest. Inconsistences in the manufacturing process of these vests can lead to a delamination risk between the layers of the product, which weakens the finished part and compromises U.S. military troop safety.


AMS developed a contact Ultrasonic Testing Examination protocol utilizing a low frequency through transmission inspection technique.

Client Benefits

  • Military troop (U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, U.S. Air Force) safety was assured.
  • Customer (end user) returns were prevented, allowing the client to meet program quality requirements.
  • AMS’s Ultrasonic Testing of laminated composite vests for this Defense Contractor resulted in significant cost savings, compared to the cost if the contractor had attempted to undertake the testing themselves.
