Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)


Ground Penetrating Radar (also called georadar) uses radio wave reflections (frequency from 25 MHZ to 3,000 Mhz) to collect information of underground or within a structure such as buried pipes, underground cavities, subsurface cracks, voids and layers’ thickness. The advantages of the method are clear: GPR technology can locate any pipes / structures / objects: metallic and nonmetallic (PVC, concrete, etc.). It is a non-destructive and non-invasive test, revealing a wealth of internal detail without the need for coring or breaking out reducing associated risks and costs. Finally, the GPR test complements the surface inspection with a documentable and precise (quantitatively interpretable) image of the underground. Using IDS instruments So.Ge.T. can count on strong expertise, quick mobilisation and reliable results. So.Ge.T. operates providing:
High Quality: with an array of antennas instruments, we enable an accurate and homogenous 3D reconstruction of the subsurface giving the ability to see shape and size of buried objects.
Productivity: using more antennas combined with positioning system can save time in the field; to accurately reconstruct the path of the underground in complex situations;
Safety: array solution can be towed by vehicles, no need of time consuming and dangerous field surveys on roads.

Available equipment
