Pilot


Top of the line multi-channel UT


Pilot is a next generation multi-channel UT device. Its one-of-a-kind specifications make the Pilot capable to perform advanced ultrasound inspections. Pilot is unique in its capacity to meet the most demanding needs of various industries, from aeronautics (employing composite and honeycomb structures) to in-line, as well as TOFD and many other applications with stringent requirements.

Compact and powerful, this 8-channel full parallel, or up to 64 multiplexed, unit pushes the boundaries of the UT benchmark as it is more efficient than any other conventional UT system in the NDT market.

  • 8-Channel Full Parallel
  • Ultra-high dynamic
  • Ultra-high speed
  • Ultra compact



Pilot’s compactness and its IP rating ensures easy integration as close as possible to the probes. With its revolutionary design, Pilot has a digital dynamic range of 162 dB, unique in the NDT market. Combined with its high data throughput, acquisition is always reliable since all parameters are manageable in the software (afterwards in post-processing also). Pilot’s high voltage transmitters and the bipolar tone burst facilitate the inspection of thick, noisy, or complex materials such as sandwich, honeycomb or composite. Also, the ability of Pilot to perform air coupled applications enables new and exciting UT possibilities.
