Proven Drone-Based Automatic Dent Inspection Maps an Entire Rafale Fighter Jet in Just One Hour


CONSTANCE, Germany and RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., Oct. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In early 2020, the French Defense Innovation Agency launched a program in partnership with 8tree, Donecle and Dassault to explore automated drone-based dent-inspection of the Rafale military aircraft.

The focus of this program was to develop an integrated solution comprising dentCHECK ? 8tree's 3D dent-mapping technology ? onboard a Donecle drone, to enable automatic inspection of aircraft surfaces.

Tested on metallic and composite surfaces, this integrated 'flying dentCHECK' solution allows the comparison of new inspection results against the aircraft's digital damage record.

The collaborative project was able to validate the technology at the French military base 118 in Mont-de-Marsan. Within one hour, the flying dentCHECK inspected dents and bumps of an entire Rafale fighter with accuracy of 0.1mm depth and 2mm size.

"It's all about automating non-destructive testing tasks and procedures. The 100% automated flying dentCHECK drastically reduces the time taken to inspect an aircraft while improving the quality of maintenance operations significantly.", says Erik Klaas, 8tree's CTO.

Both 8tree and Donecle will be exhibiting at MRO Europe in Amsterdam, October 19-21. The flying dentCHECK will be showcased at Donecle's booth #3080C, while 8tree will be demonstrating the latest dentCHECK features at booth #9059.
