State-of the art Non Destructive Testing using ultrasound is based on evaluation of C-scan images, which is done mainly visually. The development of the new Sampling Phased Array technique SPA by IZFP Fraunhofer provides a fast three-dimensional reconstruction of inner object structures. This new inspection technique is to be complemented with fully or semi-automated evaluation of ultrasonic data, providing maximum support to the operator. We present in this contribution a processing method for SPA ultrasonic data, where the main focus of this paper will be on speckle noise reduction. The evaluation method is applied on carbon fibre composite where it demonstrates robust and successful performance in recognition of defects.
