Quality control of aerospace structures and components made of composite and metal materials, as well as their raw materials.

The production process of aerospace structures and components requires quality control tests during different stages of production. To meet manufacturing program deadlines, the producers must have an accredited technological and testing partner that will enable them to integrate quality control testing of the materials, the process, and the end product, into the production flow in the least amount of time possible.
