Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR).

Detecting both metal and non-metallic pipes.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a non-destructive technique of near-surface investigations.

ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers) regulates investigation and mapping of utilities in the USA.


Marking utility targets in the field with PinPointR

  • Scans are performed in two directions and the characteristic hyperbola is typically used to designate the utility
  • Operator can mark the ground as a spot locate or perform grids for actual mapping of the facilities in real time for later upload to CAD or GIS
  • It is recommended that all designation involve both marking the ground with marking paint and electronically marking. There are QC reasons for this in the field
  • Raptor GPR Array Collection and Processing

  • 3D visualization enabling 3D deliverables
  • Always permanent georeferenced data
  • On-board visual navigation tool maps progress and coverage of the array over the survey area
  • Ability to add surveyed surface features assures good positioning adjustments to comply with updated 38
  • The standard and very powerful visualization of array 3D data is time slicing through the street. It is clear that imaging affords the ability to detect not just utilities, but the other features now included in the updated version of ASCE 38.

    ImpulseRadar USA, Inc. is an authorized distributor of the EMLID Reach RS2 GPS systems. EMLID is one of the fastest growing GPS manufacturers globally and offers a variety of robust and very easy to use GPS systems for a range of applications. The Reach RS2 is of particular interest to ImpulseRadar customers as it is an affordable addition to the PinPointR GPR system and brings centimeter accuracy to the system.

    Reach systems have the most user-friendly user interface for data collection of any system on the market and can be installed on the same Android device customers utilize for the PinPointR. ReachView software is the perfect complement to the ViewPoint PinPointR app. With the new mapping tools built into ViewPoint, customers can move from the already impressive accuracy of the built-in GPS receiver in the PinPointR to survey grade accuracy.

    For the Raptor series the Reach RS2 provides streaming NMEA output for high-speed data collection.

    The LoRa radio link data transmitter can work to distances up to 4 times longer compared with traditional FSK radios at the same power output. The LoRa radio system is used to connect rover to base when Internet-delivered corrections are not available.


    Pocket-sized and lightweight receiver.

    Works with NTRIP corrections

    Easy to set up: just add NTRIP

    Reach RX uses Bluetooth, allowing you to connect and start surveying in a few seconds. No settings to get wrong.

    The weight of Reach RX is just 250 grams. Take it anywhere—it weighs less than a can of soda and fits in any glove compartment or a backpack pocket.
