GROUND PENETRATING RADAR

For over 40 years, Penetradar Corporation has been a leader in the development and utilization of NDT

technology. We have been serving the engineering

community, specializing in the development,

manufacture and application of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for nondestructive evaluation of the

civil transportation infrastructure, geotechnical and

subsurface environmental investigations

Penetradar’s High Performance IRIS Ground Penetrating Radar Technology is unique in the industry and the only equipment available today that it has the ability to cover an entire traffic lane width, while traveling at highway speeds and at the same time collecting data at an ultra high scan rate sufficient to identify small subsurface features such as delaminations in bridge decks, voids beneath highway joints or buried subsurface objects and utilities.

Unlike other GPR companies, Penetradar is both a developer and manufacturer of GPR technology, and also a provider of GPR inspection services.  We invented the air-coupled GPR antenna in the 1970's which has made modern, high-speed pavement and bridge deck evaluation possible

Penetradar develops and manufacturers all of its own GPR technology for multiple applications and needs.

FOUR CHANNEL HIGH-SPEED ARRAY (OPERATIONAL SPEED OF 50 MPH)

Allows for complete lane coverage at highway speeds, reducing scanning time

 

Collects data at an ultra high scan rate sufficient to identify small subsurface features

NON-CONTACTING HORN ANTENNAS (2NS, 1NS, 0.75NS, 0.5NS PULSE WIDTHS)

High Speed Antennas Exhibiting Ultra Wideband Performance & High Directivity Beam minimize distortion and interference

SOFTWARE ANALYSIS TOOLS: COLOR PROFILE & WAVE ANALYSIS

Complete and comprehensive, advanced analysis software for GPR data including ColorPro for graphical analysis and WavePro for analytical measurement of radar waveforms.

WavePro measures GPR signal characteristics including power & signal voltage

ColorPro display raw radar data in a colorized format showing signal amplitude versus signal transit time & distance traveled
