September 26th – 29th : I had the privilege of attending the 54th Annual ATA NDT Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina. As a rookie in the NDT industry, it was fascinating to learn about the different types of NDT equipment available, such as Eddy Current, Ultrasonic, and Thermography. Also as a rookie, I felt like I was surrounded by some very seasoned Veterans. Three days was certainly not long enough to absorb the wealth of knowledge being offered by the many professionals at the conference. It was like “trying to drink from a fire hose.”
Our booth traffic was very heavy, and our newest 3.9 mm borescope was well received. People were certainly impressed with VJ-ADV’s picture quality for such a small diameter insertion tube. Along with the picture quality, they loved the portability (as always) and the maneuverability of the articulating tip. Of course our 6.9 mm borescope still received its share of attention. The features that most appealed to the attendees were the light weight, portability, and overall ease of use of our VJ video borescopes.
We were intrigued to find that many people attending the conference were new attendees and had not had a prior opportunity to see and learn about borescopes, including the type of video borescope features to seek when they are ready to buy a borescope.
One thing that was somewhat surprising (and nice) is that more and more people are becoming familiar with the name “RF System Lab.” We are making a strong and favorable impression on our customer base, which is quickly building our brand recognition in the RVI world. We were especially flattered to have our competitors recognize that even though our scope may not package as many functions as the very high end borescopes, what it does it does well. And the VJ-Advance is difficult to compete with pricewise with the quality features and functions it does carry.
I will look forward to attending this conference again in the future. It was a great opportunity to meet new clients, as well as learn about the different technologies available in NDT. I believe it is important as a sales consultant, to be able to advise on what technology would be best for our customer’s application.
The introduction of RF System lab’s new VJ-Advance Video Borescope as a must have RVI tool for the US Military continues following high level interest in this new borescope technology at the 2011 F-16/Proven Aircraft Worldwide Review.
The VJ-Advance Video Borescope is used by all branches of the Armed Services and the opportunity to demonstrate its capabilities to both US and Foreign Military customers made for a successful show. Military and commercial representatives from multiple nations were able to see how the full featured fully articulating VJ-Advance 6.9mm borescope borescope and the new 3.9mm video borescope provides exceptional portability, ease of use and amazing affordability. A great deal of interest was expressed for Foreign Military Sales (FMS).
RF System lab Military Sales is effectively expanding maintenance applications for military units. Changing paradigms from the traditional remote visual inspection (RVI) use of borescopes for primarily turbine inspection, the VJ-Advance makes RVI more accessible to Airframe, Life support, Corrosion Control, Avionics and other maintenance personnel, because of the easy to use format and affordability. Specific applications where our borescope has been used are helicopter and jet engine maintenance work. The list of potential uses for the VJ-Advance expands as manufacturers seek RVI technology to accomplish nondestructive inspections (NDI) in the production of Carbon Fiber Fuel Probes and hard to inspect wiring bundles. Weighing only 23 oz. the VJ-Advance Video Borescope stores photos, videos and audio for easy download, as well as, instant viewing on the built in LCD display.
Make sure you visit the RF System lab display at most major military trade shows and see for yourself the amazing value of the VJ-Advance Video Borescope. The next scheduled show is the DOD Maintenance Symposium in Fort Worth, Nov 14-17.

This week we launched the new RF System Lab Website! See the new website at http://www.rfsystemlab.us/
The website features our flagship VJ-Advance borescope with the user friendly features including joystick control, 4-way articulation, lightweight design, durable construction and an incredibly crisp, clear display.
Don’t overlook our offer to send a VJ-Advance borescope to you for a FREE TRIAL. If you like it, we’ll work out the payment details and you will be the proud owner of a fantastic industrial borescope!
RF System Labs will be an exhibitor at the upcoming Mega Rust 2011, on June 6-9. RF System Lab will be in booth #72 and will be offering to send interested agencies or facilities a demo borescope for a free trial of their VJ-Advance borescope.
Mega Rust, presented by the American Society of Naval Engineers, is an annual event for government, military, owners, operators, shipyards, research facilities, and coatings manufacturers and suppliers to come together and focus on Navy corrosion issues. Corrosion is a major factor in naval system ownership costs. This conference is intended to promote discussion and information sharing on corrosion controlling strategies and technologies. Borescopes are a vital tool in performing remote visual inspection of ships and submarines. In particular, a 4-way articulating borescope, such as the VJ-Advance, is a preferred choice in borescope systems for marine RVI uses.
Along with the regular conference agenda, Mega Rust will host professional development classes for both NACE International and the Society for Protective Coatings (SSPC) and NavAir (The Naval Air Systems Command) is holding a separate technical track.
The conference location is at the:
Ted Constant Convocation Center
Old Dominion University
4320 Hampton Blvd
