Drone GROUND PENETRATING RADAR

 Quick, Safe and Efficient, Subsurface data collection 

GPR+drone integrated system enables to see through the surface of the ground, ice, rocks, freshwater at unsafe and hazardous environments without compromising the safety of staff, providing an additional solution for more efficient surveying.

GPR Introductory Webinar

The webinar gives an introduction to the use of #airborne #GPR on #drones - the possibilities offered by the GPR+drone integrated system. The webinar covers the basics of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) usage with a drone:

  1. What is a GPR and why use it with a drone?
  2. Planning and the flight of a drone survey mission with GPR (in simulation mode)
  3. Demonstration of data analysis using data acquired during surveys: - pipeline inspection - locating a lost WWII fighter plane in Greenland
  4. Q&A

GPR Applications

GEOLOGICAL SURVEYS FOR LAYERS PROFILING

 

Strata profiling is a standard task that needs to be done before any serious area development or construction works. The standard technique is drilling dozens of holes or conducting a GPR survey on carts.

GPR+drone integrated system delivers higher work productivity and enables safer work conditions for the personnel in cases of rough terrain.

GPR allows finding any potentially dangerous underground water streams or lakes.

Data gathered by GPR on the drone flying at an altitude of 1 meter over an asphalt-covered car parking lot. The layers are clearly visible.

Mapping of underground infrastructure

Mapping of underground infrastructure is an important task before starting any construction works on previously developed territories or in cases when actual documentation and maps for underground infrastructure is missing.

SMALL OBJECTS DETECTION

Radar Systems Zond-12e #Drone 1000a #GPR system is applicable to detect small objects with a diameter starting from 8cm and pipes/cables with a diameter starting from 3cm. The GPR+drone integrated system can be used both with a drone or for terrestrial surveys if conditions don't allow to use a drone.
