Unearth the Past, Protect Archaeological Sites and Enhance Heritage Preservation with GPR

Uncover, Explore, and Protect with Utility Detection and Mapping Technology

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology provides a non-destructive, accurate, and efficient way to investigate below ground, enabling archaeologists and preservationists to understand sites and artefacts for future generations. By providing a glimpse of what's buried underneath or hidden within structures, GPR supports informed decisions about managing and protecting these important sites.

You can leverage GPR to support archaeological work or preservation projects to identify and map buried relics or hidden structures in a non-invasive way. Diversify your services while protecting history and enhancing heritage exploration by adopting our GPR solutions.


Best Utility Detection and Mapping Tools for Archaeology and Preservation




Unleash an unparalleled level of subsurface investigation

Chaser XR is a powerful all-in-one GPR solution that sets a new standard in surveying, combining the capabilities of multiple systems into one versatile tool, thus offering unprecedented flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

  • Lightweight (< 5 kg) and compact design with three different product configurations.
  • Leverage Equalized scrambled Technology (EsT) for superior noise rejection, capturing lower and higher frequencies, ensuring an extended depth range and ultra-high resolution.
  • Diverse applications, from environmental assessment to tunnel inspection, archaeological studies, examination of manmade structures, and ice and snow investigations.

Faster data acquisition and improved data management with uMap field software

uMap is user-friendly on-field software designed for efficient data collection and management. It has an easy-to-use interface that supports cloud data sharing and remote diagnostics.

  • Automatic calibration ensures an easy and quick start-up.
  • Visualisation and storage of radar data.
  • Real-time visualisation of radar tomography (time slices).
  • Connectivity with NMEA positioning devices.
  • Seamless data export, storage, sharing, and access on major cloud service providers.

Elevate the way you analyse GPR data with IQMaps

IQMaps is a post-processing software application for advanced GPR data analysis, which provides fast interfacing between the user and the GPR data. 

  • Step-by-step guide for the best and the quickest data analysis for extensive utility mapping of large projects.
  • Real-time processing, advanced target management, and 3D visualisation.
  • Anomaly detection of, e.g. sinkholes, substations, buried objects.
  • Export, store, share and access data on major cloud service providers for a streamlined workflow in utility detection.
  • Increased productivity and ease of use up to 30,000 sqm in a working day.

Maximum depth, high resolution and versatile design for superior productivity

Stream DP is a multichannel GPR array solution for real-time 3D mapping of underground utilities. Its unique Equalized scrambled Technology (EsT) offers a depth of utility detection unmatched in the marketplace.

  • Massive array of 30 channels in double polarisation for an accurate 3D reconstruction ideal for larger projects with wide scans of 82.5cm and max acquisition speed 14 km/h.
  • Best noise rejection captures both the lower and higher frequencies for an extended depth range and an ultra-high resolution thanks to EsT.
  • Multi-environment configuration for asphalt (pivoting wheels) or rugged terrain (terrain wheel)
  • Designed for easy transportation, reduced assembly time, and efficient one-person operation.
