Other GPR Uses

GPR Uses - mining and quarying, agriculture, snow and frost analysis, ERWs, UXO, etc. Since our founding, US Radar systems have aided a wide variety of professionals across a broad spectrum of uses and applications. Our products make imaging the subsurface a simple and intuitive task. These are some highly specialized ways that trained professionals can also use our products.

Humanitarian GPR Uses

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) can serve a variety of humanitarian uses. Primarily, this concerns locating objects like unexploded ordnance (UXO), unexploded bombs (UXBs), and explosive remnants of ware (ERWs). GPR gives these locators an edge due to the technology's ability to noninvasively penetrate a soil surface.

It should be noted, however, that GPR is not a safe solution for passing over any buried explosives with an active trigger. The radar system makes direct contact with soil and requires a human operator to move it.

Agriculture Uses

GRP has multiple uses in the agriculture sector. Many professionals in this field benefit from using a GPR system due to its ability to image the subsurface without having to spend time digging and potentially re-planting disturbed crops.

Some ways that GPR can be used in agriculture are, but not limited to:

  • Underground sprinkler system management
  • Analyze soil conditions
  • Find buried objects, animal dens, and other potential hazards to healthy crop growth

Snow and Frost Analysis

US Radar Inc. GPR system in antarcticaGPR can be used for a variety of applications concerning analyzing a body of ice. In regards to snow and frost, ground penetrating radar can be used to:

  • Analyze ice thickness and prevent fall-throughs
  • Locate a buried object or person
  • Evaluate snow density and other conditions

Mining and Quarrying

GPR has many beneficial uses for mining and quarrying. A system operator can use a GPR system in this environment to:

  • Analyze minerals
  • Identify mine/tunnel hazards
  • Mapping mines and quarries
  • Determine rock quality

For mining and quarrying, we recommend our 100 Series system. This is our most powerful and versatile system that can reach advanced depths of 100+ft.
