Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys | Utility Scan | GPR Scanning | GPR Systems

The UtilityScan is typically used to:

  • Scan utilities – metallic and non-metallic
  • Locate water lines
  • Detect voids and underground storage tanks (USTs)
  • Identify soil and foundation characteristics
  • Locate shallow objects for archaeology

GPR Ground Penetrating Radar Scanners are built with state-of-the-art HyperStacking Technology, for high-resolution data and increased depth penetration. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical NDT (non-destructive technique). The basic principle of GPR is the transmission of a short electromagnetic pulse, with a specified frequency, down into the ground and the recording of reflected energy as a function of time, amplitude and phase. The specified central frequency is controlled by the transmitter and receiver antennae length. The reflected energy is recorded as a “pattern” on radargrams which are displayed in real time. The radargrams are displayed in real time on the control unit and basic interpretation can be conducted on site. Often data is recorded and processed and analysed off-site using specialized software.

Utility Locating with Ground Penetrating Radar

Utility detection is critical to any construction project where subsurface excavation is planned. We offer you a comprehensive range of reporting options, from marks on the ground, to a basic field sketch that pinpoints buried electrical, water, gas, communication, sewer and storm drain lines. Our report provides you with a permanent utilities location record for future reference.

Concrete Scanning with Ground Penetrating Radar

With new build construction and renovation projects, the likelihood of needing to cut or core a concrete slab is high. Our well-trained, skilled, experienced technicians respond quickly to service requests, especially when your need for concrete scanning is a last-minute discovery. The result is professional, accurate and timely scanning – the exact satisfaction you’re seeking to mitigate risk and keep your employees safe.

GPR - Ground Penetrating Radar Reporting

Once the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) data collection in the field is complete, the next step is to pull out the key information and images and generate a final report. The EKKO_Project software makes complex GPR analysis easy with intuitive tools to organize, edit, process and plot your GPR data. Powerful visualization, analysis and integration tools allow you to quickly and easily produce impressive reports, including overlaying GPR data and interpretation into the Google Earth.
