Ground-penetrating radar maker Geophysical Survey Systems Inc. (GSSI), is offering its UtilityScan system, StructureScan Mini XT, and PaveScan RDM 2.0 for the electric utility industry.
The UtilityScan system makes locating and marking the depth of underground utilities in real-time in the field easier. With real-time target mapping and advanced scanning and identification capabilities, UtilityScan helps utility locating professionals accelerate their workflow from target detection to reporting.
UtilityScan marks the location and depth of subsurface utilities, including gas, sewer and communication lines. Real-time target mapping features include a new Map Mode that allows users to trace their steps and gain a bird’s-eye view of their survey.
The StructureScan Mini XT all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system is ideal for locating rebar, conduits, post-tension cables and voids. It can help identify structural elements, including pan decking and concrete cover, and can also provide real time determination of concrete slab thickness. Along with the Mini XT, the Palm XT Antenna will be at the show. This is a miniaturized GPR antenna that is designed to greatly enhance the capabilities of the StructureScan Mini XT. The handheld Palm XT antenna turns a basic Mini XT into an advanced system by giving users unparalleled access in tightly spaced areas and enabling overhead scanning.
For the transportation market, GSSI will have the PaveScan RDM 2.0. By uncovering inconsistencies that occur during the paving process, including poor uniformity and significant variations in density, PaveScan RDM 2.0 helps to avoid premature failures like road raveling, cracking, and deterioration along joints. The system is easy to operate with seamless GPS integration, real-time onscreen data output, and export options, this system is ideal for government transportation agencies and paving contractors alike.
