GPRover

Overview

GPRover harnesses ground penetrating radar technology for superior locating and data collection capabilities; integrating advanced subsurface imaging technology with high accuracy GPS and mapping. The antenna's award-winning triple bandwidth technology also provides a deeper, clearer read of what's beneath the surface you're scanning.

Our GPRover unit simplifies the science of utility mapping. Anyone with utility locating knowledge can quickly learn how to operate the GPRover and rely on it to provide accurate underground infrastructure imaging and mapping results. using our suite of radar software solutions, user-created datasets can be stored and shared right from the system's Windows Getac tablet.

The GPRover Difference:

  • Easy to learn and operate
  • Provides unrivaled accuracy within 5cm. (2in.)
  • Creates deliverable data that operate and field crew can use immediately

Unique GPRover Features:

  • Works exclusively with John Deere Navcom Starfire System
  • Annually renewable subscription connects you to multiple reliable networks, no matter your location
  • No cellular modem or base station required - connect the battery, power on, calibrate your antenna, and start scanning.

GPRover Applications:

The GPRover is our most popular system for utility mapping. With greater depth penetration and resolution than any other locating technology, the system can detect anything from fiber optic cables to utilities up to 30ft. (9.14m)+ deep and everything in between. The three separate datasets generated simultaneously by the triple bandwidth antenna can then be analyzed and cross-compared to create accurate, actionable information for the crew on the jobsite.

Patents Pending.

Why Triple Frequency?

GPRover is built on the award-winning triple frequency range antennas introduced with our Quantum Imager. Triple bandwidth offers superior depth and resolution compared to other imaging technologies. This is because other dual frequency range systems miss the higher resolution high frequencies and the deeper imaging low frequencies. With our signature triple frequency range system, we close that gap.

Unlike many other multi-bandwidth locating technologies on the market, ones that only offer a zoomed-in copy of the first dataset as a "second" perspective, the US Radar triple frequency range antenna emits three separate signals and compiles three separate datasets that can be viewed simultaneously. This means that you can cross-compare your findings with greater accuracy and confidence that you've thoroughly done your job.

Patented Tilt Correction Technology

The GPRover features patented slope correction technology that GPS positions for slope and cross-slope of the GPR and GPS antennas to increase overall accuracy on uneven terrain. Paired with our durable cart design, the GPRover is practically all-terrain and suitable for most work environments.
