Law Enforcement & Military

GPR technology for forensic

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.

Typical areas of use GPR:

• Evidence recovery

• Munitions/weapons caches

• UXO, IED detection, and demining

• Body recovery and hidden graves

• Clandestine bunkers and tunnels


Why is GPR useful to Law enforcement and military?

  • Detect buried caches of munitions, weapons, drugs, and cash
  • Assists in the detection and mapping of buried UXO, IEDs, and mines
  • Assist in site investigations to locate clandestine graves and hidden bodies
  • Locate hidden bunkers and tunnels
  • Intrusion monitoring of borders and other critical sites
  • Detect movement behind walls and other non-metallic structure

The ImpulseRadar CrossOver and Raptor series provide law enforcement officers and military operatives with the following benefits:

  • Compact, field-rugged, portable and easily manoeuvrable across different site conditions and various terrains
  • Intuitive and easily accessible tools to make effective adjustments on-the-fly to suit specific site conditions
  • True dual-frequency CrossOver antennas collect both high and low-frequency data simultaneously to present full coverage of the available depth range for optimum data coverage, quality and accuracy.
  • Simple georeferencing with GPS support and Google Map™ integration, and automatic field report generation, enable effortless site documentation and presentation of results.
  • Raptor 3D GPR arrays enable rapid and high-density data collection across large areas; when combined with Condor 3D data processing, archaeologists can present accurate and highly detailed results in a fraction of the usual time
