The triple frequency Quantum Imager by US Radar is capable of significantly greater depths with higher resolution than any other locating technology. Stepped Ultra Wideband Pulses combine the advantages of pulse radar and stepped frequency radar to offer unsurpassed resolution & depth. New Direct RF sampling technology creates clearer, easier to understand images than previously possible with older radar technologies. All these technologies work transparently behind the scenes to make locating easier.
Featured Hardware Technologies:
- Stepped Pulse Multi-Frequency GPR
- SmartGain 2
- Folding Rough Terrain Cart
Featured Software Technologies:
- StreetSmart Real-Time Processing
- Auto Config
- Depth Calibration
With greater depth and resolution than any other locating technology, the Quantum Imager can be used for anything from bridge deck analysis to utilities up to 30'(9.14 m)+ deep and everything in between.
Why Triple Frequency?
The Quantum Imager offers drastically more depth as well as higher resolution than any other imaging technology on the market. This is because of the lower bandwidth of dual frequency systems. Dual frequency systems also miss the middle frequencies ideal for utility locating.

US Radar Acquisition SoftwareOur GPR Software is easy to use out of the box and perfect for on-the-go locators. Each time you create a file, our software automatically calibrates antenna and processing settings to the materials being scanned.
AutoconfigureUS Radar’s software automatically sets antenna system paramaters to adjust to soil conditions.
Time-varying Gain and Manual ConfigurationEnhance image at a particular depth of interest using time-varying gain. Apply various filters to manually configure gain settings.
Color PalettesChoose from an array of helpful color palettes, alter gain (contrast) and zoom to view the data in different ways and gain important insights!
Markout and measure dataMark and label points in radar data to describe what you’ve found. Measure the distance between two points to create even more context.
Automatic Report Generation & File ExportExport radar data and automatically generate reports in a number of different formats
Optional Google Earth/Satellite Imaging Software IntegrationOverlay radar data on satellite imaging to create reliable utility maps and to see data within relevant environmental context. Add descriptions to specific coordinates to annotate radar and map data.
Optional 3D Imaging & ModelingGenerate depth slice overlays, point clouds, & isosurface models.
Optional Mapping SoftwareCan be used to create as-built drawings in the field or in the office. Exports into many formats including .kmz, (Google Earth) .dxf (AutoCAD) and .shp (ArcGIS).
Optional 3rd Party Software IntegrationGPR is not a one size fits all type of product. For this reason, in addition to our own software, our data can also be processed in several third party software packages.
