ImpulseRadar launches new system for collecting 3D subsurface information at high speed

By March 31, 2017Announcements

Sweden based specialists in GPR releases new 3D GPR array antenna.

ImpulseRadar, a Swedish start-up manufacturing Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment, announces the launch of Raptor, a new 3D GPR array solution. Raptor is the first in a range of products that the company has developed using state-of-the-art Real-Time Sampling (RTS) technology.

Raptor enables very fast collection of 3D GPR data at speeds more than 130 km/hr. @ 5 cm point intervals. Conventional systems typically operate at no more than 30 km/hr., with the same settings. The unique design allows antennas to be configured quickly, easily and expanded as needed up to 18-channels, allowing large areas or long distances to be surveyed swiftly and efficiently.

“Over the years, I received many enquiries regarding GPR technology developments and how to make the collection of large amounts of data more efficient,” says Tommy Leijon, owner and CEO of ImpulseRadar. “There appeared to be a gap in the market, so I assembled a talented team to research this further and develop a workable solution, the result of which is Raptor.

Headquartered in Malå, Sweden, the company was formed in 2015 by a group of experienced business professionals from the GPR industry to develop and supply a new range of GPR equipment. GPR is routinely used to obtain information about what lies beneath the earth’s surface by non-destructively detecting and mapping natural geological features and buried man-made infrastructure such as utility lines. GPR also proves valuable for investigations of other man-made infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, roads, runways, and more.

Bernth Johansson, CTO of ImpulseRadar explains, “recent advances in modern electronics enable us to leverage RTS in our array antenna design, which previously was not possible. Field trial results are impressive making Raptor arguably the best 3D GPR Array available today.”
