Implementation of the CTRL UL101 ultrasound detector began with the first on-board testing in 2003. A collaborative effort between CTRL and NAVSEA identified more than 100 PMS activities where ultrasound could be used to complement and improve maintenance tasks with significant returns on investment for fleet-wide implementation to all ship departments. The report demonstrated extremely favorable results on a broad spectrum of applications. Since 2003, a number of applications have been further tested and verified by the U.S. Navy. Written procedures and authorizations for those tasks are completed to the benefits of both surface and sub-surface fleet. The current awarded contract is a further indication of the U.S. Navy’s acceptance of the technology.
“We are pleased to be awarded this new contract to test and expand the use of ultrasound for the benefit of the U.S. Navy,” said Bob Roche, president of CTRL Systems, Inc. “Our continuing work with all branches of the services demonstrates both acceptance and commitment of support to our military and its mission readiness.”
