A Portable High Speed Ultrasonic Imaging System
Acoustical holography is rapidly approaching commercial status with applications to nondestructive evaluation, underwater imaging, and underground pipe location being pursued. In this paper we review the techniques involved, show some experimental results, and describe the latest commercial system.
