ATS has Multiple FAA Repair Station Certificates In Multiple States


Applied Technical Services has over 30 years of experience in aviation radiography inspection. Having traveled nationally and internationally to shoot and develop images that assist aircraft owners in meeting inspection standards, ATS’s mobile radiography labs enable us to shoot most areas of your aircraft and allow us to do on-site development for immediate results and interpretation.

Eddy Current

ATS uses eddy current inspection to detect surface and subsurface flaws. Using state-of-the-art equipment allows us to inspect different aircraft components for cracks, corrosion, and conductivity caused by fatigue, stress, and extreme heat. Our techniques include: surface and subsurface inspections, rotating bolt hole inspections, MOI, and conductivity measurements.


Our expert technicians use ultrasonic testing to discover internal and external flaws while inspecting many different parts of the aircraft structure. We offer on-site service to do full aircraft inspections and our Marietta and Greenville facility offer in-shop ultrasonic inspections for many different aviation parts.

Magnetic Particle

Many aviation companies request ATS to complete magnetic particle inspection on many different aircraft structures. Our technicians are skilled at finding cracks and other flaws as the result of fatigue, stress, and corrosion. ATS performs stationary and portable magnetic particle testing.

Liquid Penetrant

Liquid penetrant testing is commonly performed on many aircraft components to detect flaws. ATS offers all four sensitivity levels ensuring accurate results. We will perform liquid penetrant testing on-site or in our shop.

Bond Testing

ATS offers bond testing to inspect the integrity of honeycomb composites, carbon fiber composites, fiber glass and metal to metal composites. Our state-of-the-art equipment uses three major techniques including pitch-catch, resonance and mechanical impedance analysis to detect common bond flaws.

Optical Prism

Aviation customers request Optical Prism when they are suspicious of cracked windows and windshields. ATS also uses optical prism to identify chips, gouges and separation of plies. Our expert technicians have experience in performing these types of tests and they deliver accurate results.


ATS’s Borescope inspections take a closer look for interior flaws located in engines or other aircraft structures with limited access. Our experts can identify these flaws that may have been caused by stress, fatigue and corrosion.
