It is shown that to improve the accuracy of Ultrasonic (US) thickness measurements of the large-sized products made of polymeric composite materials it is required to use Phase-Shift Keyed (PSK) Signals, known from Radio Engineering, and to determine echo signaltime delay by the maximum of compressed PSKpulse.In order to improve the measurement accuracy US PSK Huffman encoding signals (M-signals) should be used in the continuous repetition mode, providing simultaneously high measurement accuracy and the greatest possible control sensitivity for a given period of repetition of probing pulses.
