BRISBANE, Australia - AussieJournal -- To locate underground services before you dig, it's important to work with a team that has the technology and expertise needed to accurately and quickly detect that infrastructure.

1 2 3 Locate It can find your underground services via our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR – Structure Scan). We can help d ( these services in many cases where standard radio-detection methods are unable to. Our teams will help you to detect buried utility infrastructure and avoid making an expensive and dangerous mistake while digging.

Ground Penetrating Radar can help you find a range items including:

*Water mains – all types, including asbestos, blue brut
*Pipes – plastic, poly, pvc
*Fire main valves
*Fibre optic cables

*Road crossings
*Rising mains
*Buried manhole covers
*Underground tanks and pits

How does Ground Penetrating Radar work?

Ground penetrating radar is a non-destructive geo-physical method that uses radar pulses to 'map' a picture of shallow subsurface features (down to approximately 6 metres). The data collected from the radar sweeping across the surface is collected to create a view of the subsurface.

What can impact or limit the technology?

Some conditions have a negative impact on GPR performance. High-conductivity (e.g. high moisture content) materials and heterogeneous conditions (e.g. rocky soils) will lessen its effectiveness. For example, while dry sandy soils will allow radar penetration to approximately 6 metres, wet clay soils and salt-contaminated soils can reduce the depth to under 1 metre. Rocky soils can cause radar signal scattering.
