The demand for reduction of the fuel consumption of aircraft leads to new technologies. One of them is reduction of turbulences on wings by manufacturing the surface with high quality. This means with a low waviness and without gaps and steps. During manufacturing of this surfaces an adequate quality control is mandatory. At present no measurement system exists which is capable of measuring large areas with high lateral and depth resolution.
The WiMo-project aims at the strategy to combine different measurement systems to a single one which allows for measuring large areas with the necessary resolution. In addition new strategies for handling the huge amount of data and evaluate them will be developed. The project result can therefore fulfill the requirements of a quality control in a production line for the natural laminar flow wing.
