Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Locating
SUE Solutions provides the latest technology and expertise in Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) services to augment our other utility locating and designating services. Our GPR services are focused on the use of cutting edge GPR technology for the identification of underground utilities where geophysical detection is not feasible due to material type or lack of tracing materials. The results include accurate location of utilities based upon GPR geospatial output that facilitates both 3D and GIS mapping products. We also utilize the GPR data for immediate evaluation of potential location and depth conflicts to facilitate real -time engineering decision making.
We also customize the implementation of GPR and related frequencies to optimize results from a specific soil strata, while also considering the signal refraction at expected utility depths. Utilizing high frequency radio waves ranging from 10 MHz to 1 GHz, we are able to fully address the variable permittivity of soil conditions to obtain optimal results. In the event that extensive clay soils are encountered, SUE Solutions supplements the GPR results with Electromagnetic Conductivity Metal Detection to provide a comprehensive evaluation of existing utility identification and location.
