Aerospace and Defense Inspection & Testing Services

Canada’s aerospace & defense industry is consistently at the forefront of technological innovation, so the technologies and processes used to inspect aerospace components must evolve with them. MISTRAS offers advanced inspection and testing solutions for aerospace composite materials and fabricated structures at our in-house laboratories.

We work with a variety of clients in the aviation, aerospace, and defense industry:

  • Commercial and Military Aeronautics Manufacturers
  • Aircraft Engine & Helicopter Manufacturers
  • R&D and Non-Disclosure Programs
  • Sub-Tier Manufacturers

We perform non-destructive inspection (NDI) services on components for corrosion, fatigue cracking, and flaws in the aerospace manufacturing processes, as aerospace component failure can lead to disastrous consequences. These inspection processes are certified by some of the largest prime manufacturers in the industry.

Our solutions primarily include the use of Radiographic Testing (RT), Penetrant Testing (PT), Ultrasonic Testing (UT), and Magnetic Particle Testing (MT). Our skilled lab technicians are trained in utilizing the most effective inspection solution for your asset. We provide these services to evaluate the structural and mechanical integrity of forged components, including:

  • Jet engines
