Noggin ®

Configurations

The configuration is the way the GPR sensor is moved across a surface to collect data.
Noggin® configurations are designed to meet diverse exploration needs by allowing you to take your GPR into every environment and terrain on Earth.

If you need to go somewhere unique, we will help you get there. Our custom engineering team will create a configuration to optimize deployment of your Noggin in specialty situations.

SmartCart®

Noggin GPR SmartCart

Mode of Operation:

The SmartCart® provides a self-contained, mobile platform for transporting the Noggin® and DVL for fast, efficient data acquisition over smooth to moderately rough terrain.

SmartCart® features:

  • A wheel odometer to trigger data acquisition at default or user-defined intervals (step size) to provide uniform data coverage.
  • A bi-directional odometer that triggers data acquisition in one direction and, in the other direction, provides a back-up arrow to easily pinpoint the location of objects found on the survey line.
  • Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ® feature automatically adjusts data acquisition rates to the survey speed; providing dynamic stacking to maximize data quality.

Products:

The SmartCart® supports all Noggin® sensors.

Options:

  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data
  • Brackets to quickly swap between the Noggin® 100, 250, 500 and 1000 sensors

SmartTow

Noggin GPR SmartTow

Mode of Operation:

The Noggin® SmartTow configuration is designed for hand-tow surveying over smooth to rough terrain such as grassy, brush covered or rocky surfaces. But don’t worry about damaging your Noggin® by dragging it around on rough surfaces – all Noggins have a durable skid plate on the bottom to smoothly slide across any surface and maintain ground-coupling for maximum signal penetration.

SmartTow features:

  • A wheel odometer to trigger data acquisition at default or user-defined intervals (step size) to provide uniform data coverage.
  • A bi-directional odometer that triggers data acquisition in one direction and, in the other direction, provides a back-up arrow to easily pinpoint the location of objects found on the survey line.
  • Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ® feature automatically adjusts data acquisition rates to the survey speed; providing dynamic stacking to maximize data quality.

Products:

The SmartTow supports all Noggin sensors.

Options:

  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data.
  • Longer cables to enable the DVL to be set in a fixed position while the GPR sensor is moved.
  • Batteries of different sizes and capacities depending on field time or portability requirements
  • Brackets to quickly swap between the Noggin® 100, 250, 500 and 1000 systems.

SmartChariot

Noggin GPR SmartChariot

Mode of Operation:

The SmartChariot provides vehicle-towed deployment of Noggin® 250, 500 or 1000 systems. It is ideal for surveys covering large, smooth, open areas that can be performed using a vehicle: roads, highway sections and bridges needing quick assessment, large parking lots, parking garages, and open fields such as golf courses and parks.
The SmartChariot attaches to a common trailer hitch on any vehicle: cars, trucks and vans, but also ATV’s (all-terrain vehicles), tractors and even bicycles and motorcycles can be used.

SmartChariot features:

  • A wheel odometer to trigger data acquisition at default or user-defined intervals (step size) to provide uniform data coverage.
  • Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ feature automatically adjusts data acquisition rates to the survey speed; providing dynamic stacking to maximize data quality.
  • A mount for a GPS receiver (GPS optional).
  • Brackets to quickly swap between the Noggin® 250, 500 and 1000 systems.
  • The ability to deploy two Noggins simultaneously: a Noggin® 500 and a Noggin® 1000.

Products:

The SmartChariot supports the Noggin® 250, 500 or 1000 sensors.

Options:

The following optional items are available to customize the system for your needs.

  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data
  • Smaller or longer-life batteries depending on the time duration of measurements or portability requirements

SmartHandle™

Noggin GPR SmartHandle

Mode of Operation:

The Noggin® SmartHandle™ configuration is designed for pushing or pulling the Noggin® over a smooth terrain. Light and compact, the SmartHandle™ is the ideal configuration for vertical or overhead surveys, or surveys in confined spaces.

SmartHandle™ features:

  • A small wheel odometer to trigger data acquisition at default or user-defined intervals (step size) to provide uniform data coverage.
  • A bi-directional odometer that triggers data acquisition in one direction and, in the other direction, provides a back-up arrow to easily pinpoint the location of objects found on the survey line.
  • Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ® feature automatically adjusts data acquisition rates to the survey speed; providing dynamic stacking to maximize data quality.
  • A 2 piece handle that can be assembled to full length handle (0.9m, 35”) or a shorter handle (0.4m, 16”).

Products:

The SmartHandle™ supports the Noggin® 500 and 1000 sensors.

Options:

  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data.
  • Brackets to quickly swap between the Noggin® 500 and Noggin® 1000 sensors.

SPIDAR® & Custom Configurations

Noggin GPR Custom Configurations
Noggin 250 and 500 SPIDAR Cart configuration

Noggin® 250 and 500 SPIDAR® Cart configuration

Mode of Operation:

For applications that require large area coverage or multi-frequency concurrent data collection, two or more Noggin® systems can be networked together into a multi-channel GPR called a SPIDAR® system.
From towing several units behind an ATV, to deploying a Noggin® 1000 on a retractable arm on a mining machine, to deploying an array of Noggins on a sewer inspection platform, our custom engineering team can help you design a configuration best suited to your unique operational needs.

Options:

  • SPIDAR® Hub, NICs and PC-based SpiView data acquisition software
  • A wide range of ancillary handles, odometers, control system housing and cables
  • Custom carts and mounting brackets
  • Wireless network support for multi frequency arrays
  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data
  • Batteries of different sizes and capacities depending on field time or portability requirements
