We, at General Dynamics, are convinced that close-range industrial photogrammetry will play an increasingly important role as a basic metrology tool in support of airframe design, manufacture and quality control. A breakthrough in the use of software enabled us to gain initial success in the application of photogrammetry in the area of wind tunnel testing, then move to full-scale aircraft inspection and aircraft structural calibration. These successful applications have led to implementation of photogrammetry as the preferred method of periodic inspection on numerous planar type assembly tools. We are currently extending this technology to the more geometrically complex tools under an Air Force Material Laboratory Contract. In the future, we hope to go into such areas as aircraft control surface position, stereo-photogrammetry to eliminate the use of targets on locators, detail parts inspection, and structural testing, including proof load and deflection data, airworthiness of aircraft and service life.
