ImpulseRadar, one of the World’s fastest growing ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology companies is proud to announce the launch of the ImpulseRadar PinPointR, a dedicated GPR utility locator instrument. The PinPointR has been developed to maximize in-field productivity by utilizing ImpulseRadar’s innovative real-time sampling (RTS) dual-channel antenna technology, which provides incredible bandwidth, speed, and resolution, all controlled via an intuitive Android-driven user interface.

Whether you are new to GPR or a seasoned operator, PinPointR offers a clear and dependable way to quickly and easily locate, avoid or map underground utilities with the functionality required to meet approved industry standards, whilst offering market-leading performance and data quality. The enhanced bandwidth of the PinPointR antenna provides resolution beyond that of any single-channel GPR system for the detection of near-surface utility targets and other internal reflectors of interest, as well as deeper utility targets with maximum depth penetration. PinPointR can be controlled wirelessly from either a smartphone or ruggedized tablet via an easy-to-use Android-driven user interface.

“We have an innate understanding of our customers’ requirements”, says Tommy Leijon, CEO of ImpulseRadar. “The key to maximizing in-field productivity is to give our users the features and functionality they use day to day in real-world scenarios. Consequently, PinPointR offers complete flexibility for collecting either single line profiles, or multi-line projects with user-defined lengths and profile spacing to suit actual site conditions and specific utility locate objectives.”

The PinPointR is built around ImpulseRadar’s innovative dual-channel RTS-based antenna technology to optimize depth penetration and detection capabilities with maximum resolution. Furthermore, the Android data acquisition App includes industry standard marker functionality (APWA, AS5488, or user-defined) to enable users to mark-up data in the field to correlate with the actual paint marks they put on the ground and any subsequent field sketches or report outputs. PinPointR includes in-built GPS and supports external GPS for enhanced geo-referencing of collected GPR data. For users who wish to post-process data, PinPointR files (including markers) can be imported into the ImpulseRadar CrossPoint software for processing, visualization, analysis, and export to CAD, GIS, and Google formats.

The ImpulseRadar PinPointR is the latest addition to ImpulseRadar’s impressive line-up of GPR solutions, including the ImpulseRadar CrossOver series of dual-channel 2D antennas and the ImpulseRadar Raptor 3D GPR Array solution.
