Concrete Inspection: Cutting and coring experts and construction professionals require a reliable, non-destructive solution to assess concrete and concrete structures. GSSI’s ground penetrating radar systems can help locate metallic and non-metallic targets and concrete characteristics such as cover and thickness information.
Utility Locating: Utility locators, construction professionals, environmental firms and land surveyors need to know about underground assets prior to digging and trenching efforts. Learn more about how our ground penetrating radar (GPR) utility systems help locate and map metallic and non-metallic underground utilities and subsurface characteristics.
Transportation: Highway professionals, engineers and transportation departments require a safe, reliable and non-destructive method to evaluate roads and bridges. Suitable for:
Nondestructive Pavement Evaluation
Map Percent Voids
Integrate with FWD
Evaluate Base & Sub-base Layers
Environmental: The key to a comprehensive environmental assessment is the subsurface investigation. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) plays an integral part by providing a non-intrusive means of examining the subsurface for environmental hazards such as soil contamination, underground storage tanks and drums. GPR can delineate landfills and pathways for contaminant flow, as well as conduct hydrogeologic investigations such as water table mapping.
Geology - Geophysics: Ground penetrating radar (GPR) offers an accurate, non-destructive solution to mapping the subsurface of the earth. With GSSI GPR antennas, it is simple to locate features of interest and subsurface layers in real time, up to 100 feet or more.
Archaeology - Forensics: Archaeologists and remote sensing specialists around the world rely on GSSI ground penetrating radar (GPR) as a key tool for non-invasive site investigation. Whether the goal is site mapping for excavation or locating sensitive cultural resources for preservation or avoidance, GSSI's remote sensing technologies have been the tools of choice for nearly 50 years. GPR is used by law enforcement and crime scene investigators to locate clandestine burials and buried objects. It has been instrumental in locating victims, hidden caches of weapons or evidence, and helping to locate the remains of soldiers and civilians killed in war zones.
Urban Search and Rescue:
Urban search and rescue (USAR) missions are extremely difficult to perform successfully, due to many obstacles including limited resources, harsh weather conditions and severely damaged infrastructure.
The LifeLocator system uses ultra-wideband (UWB) radar technology to improve the odds of recovering living victims of earthquakes, building collapses, flash floods, avalanches and other man-made disasters.
