ImpulseRadar develops and builds ground penetrating radar (GPR) instruments and related software enabling people and organizations to investigate and map subsurface features and structure. In short, the company makes it possible to ‘see’ through and into all sorts of penetrable non-conductive materials such as the ground (soils and bedrock), concrete, roads, freshwater, snow and ice. A host of associated and established applications can be addressed with ImpulseRadar’s technology, and other new application areas have emerged recently, e.g. surveillance systems.
The company targets high-margin niches of the GPR market with products based on the latest real-time sampling technology, which offers significant advantages verse existing competitors. The primary target markets are geo-related and 3D imaging, but the offering is also suitable for utility locating and mapping applications. ImpulseRadar focuses its efforts on applications where it can make a clear difference in functionality, user-friendliness and system performance.
To build value and stability into the company, ImpulseRadar strives to keep and expand its expertise around core technology and key processes, while outsourcing non-critical tasks. ImpulseRadar’s mission is to develop, produce and market high-tech products and control systems. “ImpulseRadar is unique in that we are the only GPR manufacturer whose entire product line is based on a modern real-time sampling (RTS) design platform. This technology offers unparalleled performance across our whole product range,” confirms Brian Wright, Director of Business Development.
The firm’s innovative RTS dual-channel antenna technology extends to the CrossOver series of wireless 2D antennas and the newly launched PinPointR utility locator. These systems offer incredible bandwidth, speed, and resolution, all controlled via an intuitive Android-driven user interface.
Their GPR solutions are built on the latest Real-Time Sampling (RTS) technology platform; they are fast, offer exceptional bandwidth and dynamic range, and are modular to meet your specific needs. You will be able to maximize productivity through the rapid collection of high quality GPR data, and make the best use of your CapEx budget.
The company’s desire to innovate; has led to the creation and launch of an initial range of modern GPR solutions, bringing you industry leading performance with benefits that will drive your results.
They also recognize that many of the market segments they serve are changing to move away from standalone systems toward more integrated solutions. Consequently, they know that your needs, as their customer, are also changing. Therefore, in their efforts to satisfy those needs, they are willing and eager to work with suppliers of complimentary technology and/or software solutions.
Wright concludes as he urges clients that, “We would advise potential customers to discuss their objectives in detail, so we can determine whether GPR is the right solution for their given project/ work. It is important to set expectations correctly and understand the pros and cons of GPR technology and what it can offer”.
As industry professionals, they have been influential in bringing to market innovative GPR solutions that have often driven paradigm shifts in the application of this effective non-destructive technology.
