This technique has evolved enormously over fifty years and changes have been particularly rapid over the last twenty years. Other NDT techniques (X Rays, Eddy Currents, Visual Inspection, Thermography, etc) complement ultrasonic techniques. Whichever technique is used, the purpose is to ensure that the materials, components or structures are of a satisfactory quality. The evolution of the performance requirements of NDT has been determined by developments in quality requirements. The history [1] of the development of these techniques has thus been marked by the evolution in the objectives of inspections: the "zero defect" objective of the 1960s was replaced in the 1970s by the objective of detection of "critical defects", followed in the 1970s-1980s by the objective of improving the detectability of defects. It should be noted that the term Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE) has developed for this evolution towards the characterization of defects. The 1980s-1990s were then marked by the objective of continuous and improved NDT of the systems and structures that are subject to ageing. In the 1990s-2000s appeared the needs to inspect very large areas, to monitor continuously the health of certain structures through Structural Health Monitoring (SHM), and, at the same time, to reduce the cost of inspections and other evaluations. The quality requirements behind NDT techniques is currently centred on establishing the key parameters of dimension, shape, orientation and detectability of defects. In the light of these objectives, the development of the performance of NDT systems plays an essential role in connection with the development of science and techniques in the related fields of material physics, design of components and structures, analysis of the constraints
