Security, emergency measures and military uses of GPR abound. GPR’s unique sensitivity to non-metallic structures embedded in soils, rocks and building materials results in GPR seeing use in diverse applications such as search and rescue, tunnel location, intrusion detection, UXO, landmine and buried IED detection.

Intrusion Monitoring

UXO & Landmines

Military uses of GPR focus primarily on the location and detection of buried explosive devices. For area clearing, GPR is used on ranges and old sites to identify unexploded ordnance (UXO). More recent live campaign applications involve the real-time location and identification of buried improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and buried fusing mechanisms.

Intrusion Monitoring

Security uses of GPR are wide ranging. A common application is the location of embedded wires and cables in structures. Location of buried bunkers, tunnels and buried caches are areas of growing interest. The ability to sense human motion through walls and underground sees GPR being used for intrusion detection.

Case Studies

Glacier Girl | Snow and Ice Scanning

In 1942, a squadron of aircraft were being ferried from the USA to England as part of the lend-lease of military equipment in WW II. The path would take the aircraft from Maine to Labrador to Greenland then Iceland and finally to Scotland. Weather and enemy tactics resulted in the squadron being forced to crash land on the Greenland ice sheet on July 15. While all crews (25 members in total) were safely rescued, the abandoned aircraft were swallowed up by the snow and ice in no time.
