Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) uses radar pulses to image the subsurface. It is a non-intrusive method of surveying the sub-surface to investigate underground utilities such as concrete, metals, pipes, stonework or cables. This method uses electromagnetic radiation and detects the reflected signals from subsurface structures. GPR can have a variety of applications across several fields, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. In the right conditions, ATEC-3D can use GPR to detect subsurface objects, changes in material properties, voids and cracks.

The Benefits to using UAS controlled GPR are numerous and have tremendous upside. Automation eliminates human error and survey times are quicker and cheaper than if performed using alternative techniques. Difficult to survey terrains are no longer an issue and using automation we can provide data accuracy that is incomparable with that of human conducted surveys, this also adds an additional layer of safety to ground workers. Using our GPR Systems we can locate objects as small as 8cm in diameter and pipes and cables as small as 3cm.
