FAQ

What does GPR stand for?
GPR is the acronym for Ground Penetrating Radar, also known as Georadar, Ground Penetration Radar, or Ground Probing Radar.

What is GPR?
GPR is a compact device that scans the subsurface in a non-destructive way. It can penetrate the surface from a few cm down to tens or hundreds of meters, based on soil conditions and antenna characteristics.

How does GPR work?
GPR emits electromagnetic (EM) waves to the subsurface and calculates the time these waves need to travel through the various subsurface material and get back to the GPR receiver. This two-way travel-time, along with a few... See More

What applications does GPR cover?
GPR is a very useful tool in a variety of applications. Most popular uses of GPR are the non-destructive testing and mapping of objects inside the concrete, such as rebars, pipes, ducts, and cables. Other applications are... See More

Will my GPR work as standalone unit or can it also complement other methods?
Both. GPR can be used as a standalone unit if you work on specific applications and you are happy with a limited set of feedback and information. However, it is not a tool for every job you may have onsite. In concrete... See More

What is dielectric value?
Dielectric, also known as relative permittivity, is a unitless value that determines how fast EM waves travel in a specific medium. Its values range from 1 to 81, with lower values being better for GPR. Air, which is the... See More

Can GPR find all targets?
GPR can detect metallic and non-metallic targets below the surface. However, certain limitations exist, like the depth to target limitation. The rule of thumb is that GPR can detect almost any target if it is at least one... See More

Can GPR penetrate metal?
No. Metal is a perfect reflector of GPR with an infinite dielectric, thus all EM energy is being reflected to the radar. Differently to GPR, Ultrasonic tomography can penetrate metal with only a partial reflection allowing... See More

What affects my data quality?
Anything that emits at the same frequency range as GPR, from around 10MHz up to 6GHz, can be a potential source of noise for your data. Cell phone towers are a main source of interference. Collecting data close to cell... See More

What does not affect my data quality?
Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi are not a source of interference and therefore you can use them with no problems when collecting GPR data.

How deep can GPR penetrate the subsurface?
This depends on the soil conditions, and most importantly on the dielectric and the electrical conductivity. The higher the water and salt content in a material, the shallower a radar penetrates the ground. Pulsed systems... See More

Will my GS8000 GPR collect any data if I do not move?
No. Data collection on GS8000 is triggered by wheel movement. If you do not move the radar, then no data collection is happening. The wheel is acting also as an odometer, giving local coordinates on the x-axis direction.

Do I need to calibrate my GS8000?
No. GPR self-calibrates each time you turn it on. There is no need to send your unit back to a repair/calibration center.

Does GS8000 work on all surfaces?
GS8000 comes with a rugged cart and can work on most surfaces without a problem. If the wheels can move, then your antenna can collect subsurface data. However, you must keep in mind that very uneven surfaces can create... See More

What is the difference between 2D and 3D data?
2D Data are collected over single lines and give you a B-scan or radargram of the specific profile the radar has covered. The B-scan is a graphical representation of radar data (sequence of A-scans or traces) on an x-axis... See More

I have an EM locator, why should I buy a GPR?
Because GPR can detect all targets, metallic and non-metallic and features like layers, rebars, and voids in the subsurface. EM locators will detect targets made from conductive materials and will need to energize other... See More

Can I connect GPS with my GS8000?
Yes. GS8000 comes with standard GNSS receiver that syncs with GPR data automatically. You don’t have to connect external data loggers or buy third party location systems.

Is GPR safe for operators?
Yes. GPR, unlike other testing methods such as radiography, is totally safe for the operator. Our antennas are shielded and emit most of the EM energy down to the subsurface. Total emissions from GPR are a tiny fragment of... See More

Is GPR environmental-friendly?
Yes. As a non-intrusive technique, GPR does not alter or burden the environment and can be used in sensitive areas or environmental fragile areas without a problem.

Do I need a license to carry a survey?
That depends on the area you want to work and the local regulations. However, GPR surveys do not typically require a safety clearance because the method itself is not dangerous. If however, you work at a dangerous or... See More

Do standards exist for GPR surveys?
Yes. ASTM has published the standard ASTMD6432–19, as a guide for using GPR for subsurface investigation. You can get more info here https://www.astm.org/Standards/D6432.htm There are several other standards related to... See More

Is Screening Eagle GPR certified?
Yes. Our equipment meets CE, IC, FCC, ETSI-EN RSS-220 and RoHS regulations.

Can I transport or ship my equipment with safety?
Yes, unlike the competitors who use batteries characterized as dangerous goods for aviation, Screening Eagle’s GPR use standard rechargeable NiMH C-batteries which can fly with you, ship with no restrictions, and most... See More

What is the most used data format for GPR?
Typically, GPR exports data in the SEG-Y format. This can be easily converted to other formats like .xls, .dxf or .kml if needed for further visualization of data.

What is GNSS positioning and how accurate can it get?
GNSS stands for Global Navigation Satellite Systems. The most famous constellation is GPS, but nowadays it is possible to receive simultaneously the signal from multiple constellations, such as Glonass, Galileo, and... See More

What is Stepped Frequency Continuous Wave?
Unlike Pulsed-GPR broadcasting a signal centered around one frequency, resulting in a trade-off of resolution and depth for inspecting, stepped frequency continuous wave (SFCW) has the advantage to broadcast an ultra... See More

What is SEGY format?
The SEGY (sometimes SEG Y) file format is a commonly used data standard for the exchange of geophysical data. It is mainly used for Seismic data, but also for saving GPR raw data. Our GPR SEGY files can also be used for... See More
