Can't find the answer to your question?

Noggin® sensors have patented ultra-wide band (UWB) antennas with center frequencies of 100, 250, 500 and 1000 MHz: lower frequencies for deeper penetration and higher frequencies for shallow, high resolution surveys.

NOGGIN® 100

noggin100

 

The Noggin 100 provides low frequency, deep sounding GPR capability with a center frequency of 100 MHz. Designed for true portability, the Noggin 100 has detachable antennas which allow the system to be packed easily for shipping or transport, even by backpack! The Noggin 100 retains all the simplicity and integrated form factors that have made the other members of the Noggin family so popular.

Common configurations:

  • SmartTow
  • SmartCart

Common applications:

  • Geologic mapping
  • Geotechnical applications (underground storage tank (UST) detection)
  • Deep subsurface utility mapping (SUM)

NOGGIN® Ultra 100

The NOGGIN Ultra 100 has all the capability of the Noggin 100 described above with the addition of Ultra Receiver technology.  This allows the system to stack the data traces up to 65,536 times to reduce the random radio frequency noise floor and increase the depth of penetration – all with little to no increase in data collection speed.  To learn more about Ultra Receiver technology see Ultra Receiver.

The Noggin 250 is the workhorse for subsurface mapping.  With a center frequency of 250 MHz this system provides the optimal balance between depth of penetration and resolution. This durable system is the most popular of the Noggin family.

Common configurations:

  • SmartCart
  • SmartTow
  • SmartChariot

Common applications:

  • Subsurface utility mapping (SUM)
  • Archaeology
  • Forensics

NOGGIN® 500

 

noggin500The Noggin 500 is used for applications requiring high resolution with a medium level of exploration depth. It features a center frequency of 500 MHz.

Common configurations:

  • SmartCart
  • SmartTow
  • SmartHandle

Common applications:

  • Shallow subsurface utility mapping (SUM)
  • Archaeology
  • Forensics

NOGGIN® 1000

noggin1000The Noggin 1000 is essential for shallow applications such as concrete inspection and road infrastructure projects where resolution is critical. It has a center frequency of 1000 MHz.

Common configurations:

  • SmartTow
  • SmartCart
  • SmartChariot
  • SmartHandle

Common applications:

  • Infrastructure assessment: concrete structures, roads, pavement, runways
  • Military UXO and Security
  • Forensics and Archaeology
