LAser Ultrasonic Drone ENabled Testing

Project Information:

  • Project title: LAser Ultrasonic Drone ENabled Testing
  • Acronym: LAUDENT
  • Duration: 36 Monate (Start 01.10.2021)
  • Funding: FFG The Austrian Research Promotion Agency


The aim of the LAUDENT project is to develop a non-destructive laser-ultrasonic test system for the detection of impact and lightning damage, delamination and cracks inside modern CFRP structures, which can be deployed flexibly and quickly in the service area of an airport thanks to its drone-based autonomous flight capability.

This will eliminate the need for scaffolding, climbers in the hangar, saving about half the standing time and thus significantly reducing costs.
