My name is Karl Harrar and since 1985 I have designed electronic circuits working for many large and small companies, Raytheon (Javelin and Tow missile systems), Motorola (hand held communication devices), Smithsonian Institute (MMTO Telescope), Honeywell (B1B air data computer), DRS (night vision and thermal imaging systems), 3M (Control System Design), VW proving ground (Endurance vehicle testing), and a many other smaller electronic manufacturing companies. A little over 5 years ago I started work on a Ground Penetrating Radar System that would be affordable, rugged and high resolution. The other main goal was to make it easy to use. This unit has gone through many design updates over the last 5 years to provide the best possible product and with every effort made to keep the cost down.I wanted to make systems available for the person that could not afford the normal 15K plus price tag. This is a product that Im really excited about offering to the public and as an enthusiast myself, I hope that you find it as useful as I have! Fully FCC certified and approved.
For far too long, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) systems have been priced out of reach for many hobbyists and small business owners. Our goal was to produce a system that could compete with the features and capabilities of existing GPR units, but at a much lower cost. This unit use Windows notebooks or Android tablets instead of custom display/controllers. This further reduces the cost of the system and gives the end user many more choices.They are modular and can be updated in the future by simple replacement of system level components. The result is a highly functional GPR unit that is rich with features, durable, affordable and flexible!
Put the advantage of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) in your hands at an amazing price, whether you want to grow your business or find buried treasure. A Ground Penetrating Radar is a device used to scan a surface and show differences in the subsurface structure these can be buried objects, change of medium or cavities. The GPR produces electromagnetic radiation in the 10-2000MHz band of the radio spectrum and detects the reflected signals from the objects that are in the way of the transmitted waves.This is a nondestructive method, hence there is no damage to the operator or the surface being scanned. A GPR generally consists of three modules a transmitter and a receiver antenna and an analogue to digital converter unit. The transmitter module produces very fast pulses consisting of ultra-wideband frequencies that penetrate almost any medium and the receiver module listens to the reflected signal from the scanned medium. This in turn is sent to the Analog to Digital converter that quantifies the signal to computer readable values.
The varying permittivities of different objects and materials produce reflections in the returning signal allowing the detection of cavities, buried objects and any other changes in the subsurface structure. Ground-penetrating radar is a reliable solution for locating underground utilities.
Standard electromagnetic induction utility locating tools, require utilities to be conductive. These tools are ineffective for locating plastic conduits or concrete storm and sanitary sewers. Since GPR detects variations in dielectric properties in the subsurface, it usefull for locating non-conductive utilities.
GPR can be used to perform a comprehensive environmental assessment of the subsurface. Environmental hazards such as soil contamination, underground storage tanks and drums can be easily seen using this non-intrusive method. The delineation of landfills, pathway contaminant flow and water table mapping can all be done using GPR.
Ground penetrating radar survey is the best method used in archaeological geophysics, because it can be used to detect and map subsurface archaeological artifacts, features, and patterning. A powerful tool in favorable conditions (uniform sandy soils are ideal), GPR like other geophysical methods used in archaeology (and unlike excavation) can locate artifacts and map features without any risk of damaging them. Among methods used in archaeological geophysics it is unique both in its ability to detect some small objects at relatively great depths, and in its ability to distinguish the depth of anomaly sources. Military / Border Patrol (Security). Military applications of ground-penetrating radar include detection of unexploded ordnance and detecting tunnels.
GPR can be used to determine mining safety, finding bedrock and sand depth, gravel layers, rock quality and also determine mineral content. The item "GROUND PENETRATING RADAR 500 MHz FCC pipes, graves, tanks, tunnels, treasure" is in sale since Saturday, July 14, 2018.
