Software

  • US Radar Acquisition Software
    US Radar Acquisition Software
    Our 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.
  • Autoconfigure
    Autoconfigure
    US Radar’s software automatically sets antenna system parameters to adjust to soil conditions.
  • Time-varying Gain and Manual Configuration
    Time-varying Gain and Manual Configuration
    Enhance image at a particular depth of interest using time-varying gain. Apply various filters to manually configure gain settings.
  • Color Palettes
    Color Palettes
    Choose 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 data
    Markout and Measure data
    Mark 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 Export
    Automatic Report Generation & File Export
    Export radar data and automatically generate reports in a number of different formats.
  • Optional 3D Imaging & Modeling
    Optional 3D Imaging & Modeling
    Generate depth slice overlays, point clouds, & isosurface models.
  • Optional Google Earth/Satellite Imaging Software Integration
    Optional Google Earth/Satellite Imaging Software Integration
    Overlay 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 Mapping Software
    Optional Mapping Software
    Can 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 Integration
    Optional 3rd Party Software Integration
    GPR 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.

Versatility

Through its unique modular design the Seeker SPR can be expanded to meet growing needs. The Seeker SPR is truly the most versatile GPR system on the market today.

With minimal effort and expense, this system can also be re-configured to any of these powerful solutions:

250 Series 250m-small Deep Utility Locating Systems Locate larger targets up to 30' (10 m) deep at medium resolution.
100 Series 100-profile-gps-small Deep Geophysical System Locate tunnels, mines, and geophysical features up to 100' (30 m) deep.
1000 Series 1000hr-small High Resolution Cart System Perfect for locating conduit and rebar in floors as well as bridge deck analysis.
1000 Series 1000HH-small Deep Concrete Scanning System For deeper concrete scanning and analysis up to 4.5' (1.4 m) deep, with a minute sacrifice in detail compared to the 1500.
2000 Series 2000HH-small High Resolution Concrete Scanning System For working in slabs with denser rebar patterns which are becoming increasingly common. Locates fine targets up to 2' (.6m) deep. This is the best all-around performing concrete scanning antenna for most applications.
