GPR Equipment

GeoReader Software supports both Russian and foreign GPR formats

We, as a partner of the TerraZond company, offer for delivery the first in Russia multichannel georadiotomograph (3D GPR)

GRT-XX georadiotomograph TerraZond

Let's see what it represents the equipment

For scanning continuous media, an antenna array with distributed receiving and transmitting high-frequency (HF) antennas of a wide range is used, which probes the environment from different angles

For the detection and localization of inhomogeneities mathematical used focusing method and radar technology with synthetic aperture, in which all the registered-array summed RF signals in the phase defined for each focusing point

Focusing is carried out by sequential summation of the received signals with equalization of the time delays of the pulses scattered by the point with the given coordinates. After performing the focusing operation for each point of the selected volume of space, a three-dimensional radio image is built

The focusing operation is carried out in the frequency domain using fast processing algorithms, which makes it possible to realize three-dimensional tomograms of the investigated space in real time

Data acquisition mode assumes standard switching of antenna pairs:

Standard antenna commutation GRT-XX

and switching the antenna pairs in the mode common midpoint:

Switching CMP method GRT-XX

The apparatus of the multi-GPR (georadiotomograf) is designed for the detection and spatial localization of objects and inhomogeneities hidden in various media (soil, road coverings, building construction, etc.)

Objects and inhomogeneities are detected, the dielectric constant of which differs from the background dielectric constant of the medium. The software allows you to obtain three-dimensional raster images of the explored space. It is possible to provide three-dimensional images layer by layer in the form of a set of images obtained at various sections of the probed volume along the selected direction, and three-dimensional visualization of inhomogeneities is also possible. Based on the obtained image, the operator makes a conclusion about the presence and location of buried objects and inhomogeneities within continuous media

The GRT-3X georadiotomograph is a modular complex consisting of a unit for generating and receiving HF pulses based on a chirp generator and an antenna array module. In addition to the chirp block of the HF pulse generator and antenna modules, the equipment also includes a navigation block and a control computer

The built-in GPS / GLONASS navigation unit with the UDR system allows for accurate data association with the trajectory of the traveled path, even in dense urban areas. The antenna array has a modular construction principle. Each module consists of 4 receiving and 4 transmitting antennas for the range 0.5-3 GHz. Antenna modules can be cascaded into a bar to extend coverage for continuous media scanning

Multichannel 3D-GPR GRT-3X is the ability to collect up to 31 precisely parallel profiles with a transverse pitch between profiles from 7.5 cm. Maximum coverage per pass is 2 m 325 mm

Maximum resolution along the antenna array - from 10 cm, depth resolution - 1-2 cm, depending on the studied environment
