NEW Concrete Scanning GPR Systems

Posted by on March 15, 2012 at 4:09 pm

It seems the trend in ground penetrating radar concrete scanning systems is to go smaller, lighter and more portable. These are all positive benefits for these new smaller systems. However, these benefits may come with a few compromises. The new “Mini” concrete scanning GPR systems featured in this blog are from two leading GPR system [...]

GPR Geophysical Survey on SKIS

Looks like Sensor’s & Software have done it again! In last month’s Subsurface Views, the company’s newsletter, they announced another ground penetrating radar system with life saving potential. Rescue Radar, as it’s being called, can help locate buried victims of earthquakes, avalanches or building collapses. You are probably aware that ground penetrating radar can penetrate [...]

Ground Penetrating Radar used for Snow Rescue

Posted by on November 24, 2010 at 11:28 am

Ground penetrating radar has many applications from geophysical surveys to locating subsurface targets such as utilities below ground or rebar in concrete. Other practical applications include cemetery mapping to locate unmarked gravesites, locate drainage lines on golf courses, locate underground storage tanks and assist law enforcement agencies to find buried evidence and bodies. It is also [...]

Ground Penetrating Radar Saves Lives in Afghanistan

Although this is not our area of expertise I found this news release fascinating. What caught my interest was that ground penetrating radar technology (GPR), which we use every day for geophysical surveys, to locate utilities underground, for concrete imaging, cemetery mapping and also forensic locating, is now being used to locate Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) in Afghanistan. These [...]
