Bespoke 44-Channel 3D GPR Array Solution with Raptor-80 Antennas
At ImpulseRadar, we build modern high-performance GPR antennas built on the latest Real-Time Sampling (RTS) technology. A good example is the ImpulseRadar Raptor antenna solution which is based on the concept of a separable transmitter and digital receiver that form an adaptable self-contained GPR system. When connected to a suitable ethernet switch, Raptor antennas can be configured in pairs to form multi-channel 3D GPR array systems with up to 30-channels as standard. The flexibility of these configurations allows Raptor to be used to create everything from small pushcart systems up to larger vehicle mount systems.
However, Raptor antennas can actually be configured to form much larger arrays. As word of this has spread, we have been approached by a client to make a bespoke 44-channel array solution utilizing Raptor-80 (800 MHz) antennas. This arrangement will result in an array covering a width of 2.4 m, which in Europe is about the maximum that can legally be mounted behind a vehicle, without special arrangements.
