pulseEKKO®

For the GPR Professional

pulseEKKO® GPR systems provide unparalleled performance with a wide-range of frequencies for applications ranging from deep mineral exploration and glaciology to high-resolution geotechnical investigations and concrete imaging.

System Overview

pulseEKKO

pulseEKKO® is designed to meet the needs of GPR professionals, addressing many GPR applications.

  • The operating bandwidth is selectable from 12.5 MHz to 1000 MHz to optimize the spatial resolution required by target size and exploration depth.
  • The fully bistatic design enables variable antenna offsets and orientations for advanced survey types such as multi-offset, transillumination and multi-polarization.
  • Low system noise paired with high-accuracy digital acquisition directly at the receiving antenna results in unprecedented depth of penetration.
  • Many deployment configurations are available for practical field operation.
  • Data are acquired in Sensors & Software’s industry standard file format for analysis with a range of processing and visualization software products.

Applications

  • Geological stratigraphy: Profile subsurface stratigraphy, structure and the bedrock surface
  • Mining & Quarrying: Detect changes in rock type, fractures, faults and joints for safety and resource development in underground mines
  • Geotechnical & Environmental: Map depth to bedrock, detect sinkholes, locate underground storage tanks (USTs) as well as septic systems, drainage systems on golf courses and farms
  • Forensics & Archaeology: Law enforcement uncover buried caches of drugs, money, weapons and clandestine graves. Archaeologists image underground artifacts, tombs and the foundations of ancient structures
  • Glaciology, Ice & Snow: Measure the thicknesses and image the internal structure of glaciers and ice sheets for polar ice-cap and climate change research. Measure snow depth for water resource management and ice thickness for ice road safety.
  • Structure assessment: Assess the interior of concrete and pavement for asset management and maintenance planning

Advanced Survey Methods

As well as traditional reflection surveys, pulseEKKO’s bistatic antennas allow for variable antenna separations – ideal for CMP, WARR, multi-fold and transillumination surveys.

CMP: Common midpoint (CMP) surveys for subsurface velocity calculations, water content measurements and seismic-style trace stacking.
