  • pulseEKKO PRO The pulseEKKO PRO system provides fully digital, bi-static operation in a variety of applications from deep subsurface sounding to high definition mapping of shallow objects. This modular system is designed for the GPR professional contractor or researcher with a variety of applications that demand versatility and high performance. The pulseEKKO PRO is high-fidelity, modular system features bi-static operation, fully-digital timing control for digital data acquisition. Low frequency antennas are available with a range of frequencies (12.5, 25, 50, 100 and 200 MHz) that provide deep sounding. The antennas use fibre optic cables to ensure the highest data quality with minimal interference. The pulseEKKO PRO also offers 50, 100 and 200 MHz borehole antennas to map areas inaccessible to surface GPR. Engineers, geologists and environmental consultants typically use the low frequency antennas for mapping depth to bedrock, mining development, groundwater studies, water table mapping, glaciology and tomography imaging. The higher frequency, shielded transducers are designed for high-resolution subsurface mapping surveys. Frequncies of 250, 50 and 1000 MHz are available. Engineers, consultants and contractors typically use the system for utility detection, rebar and conduit location, road and pavement analysis, concrete evalution, structural assessment, forensics and archaeology. The pulseEKKO PRO can be deployed in several configurations including SmartCart, a 4-wheeled cart for data collection in open areas, SmartTow, a hand-towed system for rough areas and SmartChariot, a vehicle-towed platform for pavement surveys.

  • Noggin Combining the latest GPR technology into a single package, Noggins can non-destructively map subsurface metallic and non-metallic objects, define variations in soils, rocks and subsurface disturbances. Available in 4 models (100, 250, 500 and 1000 MHz), these lightweight, compact units offer affordability and ease-of-use. Noggins provides full digital output to facilitate applications where post-survey processing is beneficial. Noggins can be deployed in several configurations including SmartCart, a 4-wheeled cart for data collection in open areas, SmartTow, a hand-towed system for rough areas and SmartChariot, a vehicle-towed platform for pavement surveys.

  • Conquest Conquest is a subsurface imaging system designed for the non- destructive examination of concrete. Conquest can locate rebar, conduit and post-tension cables embedded in a suspended slab or slab-on-grade concrete. Unlike traditional X-rays, the instrument is safe and easy-to-use. Conquest images the work area, enabling users to avoid cutting or drilling through embedded cables or conduits. Coupled with the GPR sensor is a Power Cable Detector (PCD) that detects flowing current in conduits within or under the slab. This feature adds a second level of safety when scanning for objects. Operators are guided through the acquistion by the menu on the monitor screen. Once scanning is completed, Conquest produces plan- map views at various depths in the slab under investigation, allowing decisions to be made on-the-spot. Data can also be transferred to a PC for for further analysis and report generatoin using the EKKO_Project and ConquestView software, including 3D visualization.

  • IceMap The Sensors & Software IceMap system is designed to measure the thickness of ice on the temporary winter ice roads and bridges used in the frozen regions of Canada, Alaska, Europe and Russia. This information is important to ensure the ice is thick enough to support vehicles transporting people, goods and exploration equipment. IceMap is towed across the ice surface behind a truck or snowmobile and the ice thickness data are wirelessly transferred to a laptop computer in the tow vehicle and displayed in real-time as a cross-sectional image. The bottom of ice is automatically picked and thickness in cm or inches is displayed on the PC. Rapid data acquisition enables the unit to be towed at speeds up to 80 km per hour. The system is powered using a 12V battery. Users can combine IceMap data with Global Positioning System (GPS) readings for precise correlation of ice thickness and geographic location. PDF reports of the survey are automatically generated, including the 10 thinnest areas and statistics about the ice thickness along the survey line. Data can then be exported in CSV or Google Earth KMZ file formats to display plan-view maps of the ice thickness in GIS software or Google Earth.

  • SnowScan SnowScan is the unique solution developed by Sensors & Software Inc. for the ski industry to measure, inventory and manage their snow. SnowScan can measure snow thickness in real-time, allowing the operator to optimize snow distribution, reduce water pumping and water consumption for snow-making, reduce damage to grooming machines and ultimately extend the ski season by days or even weeks. The SnowScan groomer sensor is mounted under the grooming machine and is connected via cable to a laptop computer inside the groomer's cab. When combined with GPS, map images of snow depth can be quickly generated, allowing ski area managers to quickly evaluate results of the previous night's grooming and snow-making operations.

  • Rescue Radar Rescue Radar uses ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology to detect the movement of victims buried in soil, rock, rubble or snow from building collapses, earthquakes, landslides, avalanches and terrorist attacks. It is designed for rapid deployment by search and rescue teams. Rescue Radar interrogates the subsurface for movement while an operator monitors the progress on a remote computer. Rescue Radar is sensitive to small movements of arms, legs or even breathing. Placing the unit at various locations allows quick mapping of an area. Rescue Radar is tough, portable and simple to use with multiple language support. The GPR sensor communicates via wireless link to the operator's remote computer. The unit is totally self-contained and will run for 6 to 8 hours with the replaceable, rechargeable battery.
