This includes components and assemblies for military planes, ground vehicles such as trucks, tanks, submarines and ships, to missiles, shells, explosives, bombs and from small arms to heavy artillery.

Our Real Time Radiography is principally used for the inspection of rocket motors, missiles, flares, explosives and fuze mechanisms, where a live image is required.

Digital Radiography (DR) is also used to replace x-ray film and inspect components that are simply too dense to provide a real-time image.

Computed Tomography (CT) is used for the inspection of complex devices, particularly missile components, safe and arm and fuze mechanisms.
