Our Ground Penetrating Radar solutions empower informed decision-making. Understanding what lies beneath the surface in materials like soil, rock, rubble, pavement, concrete, water, ice and snow opens endless possibilities.

Ground penetrating radar’s versatility coupled with integration with mapping and GPS technology, calibration techniques and 3D capabilities of a sophisticated subsurface imaging system allows it to be adjusted to suit a variety of applications.
