Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) encompasses a multitude of other applications other than the typical utilities and concrete applications.
Whilst Detection Services mostly employs this technology for locating underground utilities or storage tanks, GPR is so much more and has uses in a variety of fields, which we have been fortunate enough to take part in over the years. We employ the latest dual-frequency antennas for utility detection with superior resolution at both shallow and higher depths, to large low frequency antennae suitable for deeper archaeological and geophysical analysis, to tiny handheld Concrete Penetrating Radars and everything in between. We have been employed to survey the bottom of ponds and shallow lakes, look for buried mine shafts, locate tree roots, forensic investigations and surveyed old cemeteries for buried locations.
Another popular use for GPR is the locating of underground cracks and voids be they only a few inches under the ground or a few meters, this has also been a common use for our GPRs particularly in earthquake prone areas like Christchurch. Other fields and industries like Roading, Geology, Forensics and even Mining all have GPR applications and we are happy to bring our expertise to your particular problem. Not sure if GPR can help?
