Machine vision technology in all its forms is fundamental to the Aerospace industry.

Aerospace is a sector where precision, unfailing quality and safety are primordial. Vision technologies that control aspect, quality, compliance and dimensions are invaluable in all processes and in all parts of the industry, from airplane and satellite component assembly, to rocket and jet engine performance monitoring.

Whether in testing passive material compliance prior to assembly or dynamically assessing in-flight parameters, the aerospace industry ensures strict compliance to standards at all times. The roles assigned to machine vision technology are thus virtually unlimited.

Controls are performed continuously and at all stages, including the earliest, when innovative materials are evaluated to determine their ultimate performance characteristics. Machine vision is equally important in assembly, where mobile or static cameras and sensors monitor extensively, from welded, riveted or bolted substructure assemblies, to the surface integrity of sheet metal skins and leading edges exposed to extreme conditions. At all points, the precision and speed of machine vision measurement is invaluable.

Sharpening competition among aircraft manufacturers further increases the reliance they place on machine vision, rendered indispensable because of the reliability of its measurements and the versatility of its applications.

The aerospace industry, at the cutting edge of innovation, is where the complexity of parts management and their tracking and picking, both in the supply chain and assembly process, make it a trail-blazer for the development of the software management of the future, reliant on a neural complexity of data interconnections heralding the 4.0 industrial revolution in the drive for higher performance and rates of return on investment.
