ImpulseRadar launches new system for collecting enhanced 2D subsurface information

By April 28, 2017Announcements

Sweden based specialists in GPR release new dual-channel 2D GPR solution.

ImpulseRadar, a Swedish start-up manufacturing Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment, announces the launch of CrossOver, a new dual-channel 2D GPR solution. The CrossOver CO4080 antenna is the first in a series of CrossOver antennas that the company has developed using state-of-the-art Real-Time Sampling (RTS) technology.

CrossOver antennas will enable quicker surveys with improved performance using two channels with ultra-wide band frequencies. The extra-large bandwidth offers exceptional dynamic range for maximum signal penetration, data clarity and quality.

“RTS-based GPR antennas have already proven their effectiveness, even against conventional dual-frequency designs,” says Tommy Leijon, owner and CEO of ImpulseRadar. “given the market interest in dual-frequency systems, it was an obvious choice for us to develop our new RTS-based platform as a dual-channel concept.

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 comments further, “our dual-channel approach takes the performance improvements of our RTS-based design to another level. Combined with the flexibility of our platform and CrossOver is more than dual-frequency.”
