IDS GeoRadar launches new GPR for large scale asset mapping

By on 29 April, 2020

IDS Georadar’s newest ground penetrating radar is aimed at efficient capture of underground utility assets across vast areas.

The latest in the Hexagon firm’s Stream series of ground penetrating radar units is designed to be suspended behind a vehicle, making it capable of acquisition at speeds up to 150 km/h — though the recommended capture speed is 60.

IDS says that this design feature also greatly reduces mechanical stress on the unit for lower maintenance costs. A new control unit, dense antenna arrays and dynamic stacking allow high data quality at increased speeds, according to the firm.

“Stream UP is the cutting-edge product for extensive utility mapping. Nothing has existed like this before,” said IDS GeoRadar President Alberto Bicci.

“The innovative suspended modular frame is safer than ever thanks to shell structure and embedded anti-collision system. Furthermore Stream UP is compliant with traffic regulations and there is no need of escort vehicles.”

Hexagon products are distributed through CR Kennedy in Australia.
