SFCW Ground Penetrating Radar- A paradigm shift in utility mapping

Stepped Frequency Continuous Wave (SFCW) Radars has significantly improved the quality of data that can be obtained during utility mapping projects. Unlike Pulsed-GPR which broadcast a signal centred around one frequency, resulting in a trade-off of resolution and depth for inspecting, SFCW broadcasts an ultra-wide-band range of modulated frequencies. The combination of all frequency response enables detection of objects from shallow to deep depth in one scan.

The workshop will comprehensively cover all the aspects related to conducting a successful underground utility detection and mapping project, with special emphasis on the huge difference made by use of SFCW GPR under Quality Level- B.
