GroundVue 100
from Utsi Electronics

The GroundVue 100 is a monostatic shielded 100MHz central frequency antenna. The Antenna utilises a real time analogue to digital converter to provide unbeatable signal to noise at long two way time travels.

The Real time A/D with internal stacking, giving a total of 24 bits data width, and improving the signal to noise ratio of late arrivals. The system has been designed for environmental studies and brownfield site investigations. With a strong yet light rugged housing the GV100 can be pulled by a single operator for small areas surveys or towed behind a vehicle for larger surveys over uneven ground. In continuous recording mode the GV100 will record 11 traces per second; alternatively the system can be triggered via a trailing odometer wheel which connects to the rear of the antenna.

Applications

  • Depth of Peat.
  • Depth to bedrock.
  • Shallow cavity detection.

Data is transferred via wireless network or Bluetooth (please specify on order) to a Windows OS device. Goespatial positions can be integrated through the recording device. The intuitive and user interface means data acquisition is simple and quick.

The Latest version of the GroundVue data acquisition software can be accessed from this link - GroundVue Software.
