Abstract : This report describes the full scale development of a portable, multi-modal, large area scanning system for nondestructive inspection of airframe structures. The Mobile Automated Scanner (U.S.) incorporated ultrasonic pulse echo, ultrasonic resonance and eddy current scanning capabilities with scan speeds up to 400 sq. ft./hr. The system generates C-scan formatted data for interpretation and archiving. Prototype systems were deployed at five Air Logistics Centers and two Navy depots for evaluation. The system was subsequently productionized as the MAUS IV.
