Law Enforcement & Military
Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) presents law enforcement officers and military operatives with a way to conduct detailed subsurface investigations of sites of high interest. Humanmade objects, both metallic and non-metallic, contrast nicely against natural geological materials, and GPR is distinctively sensitive to these differences. The ability of GPR to see such disparities, as well as other anomalies within the natural subsurface environment, makes it extremely useful across a diverse range of law enforcement and military-related applications.
GPR offers a convenient, reliable, and non-destructive way to investigate the sub-surface. In addition to finding specific objects or features, GPR can help clear sites in an efficient and structured manner to localize areas of interest. This approach enables the effective allocation of resources to minimize the likelihood of investigating or digging at the wrong location. By comparison to other detection technologies, especially those related to metal-detection, GPR doesn’t suffer from a high instance of false indications if metallic fragments and debris are present. Ultimately, GPR allows more effective planning to save time, effort, and money.
