GSSI of Nashua announces new sales professional for Western Canada

GSSI, the world's leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, is pleased to announce the hiring of Adam Mercer as Application Specialist, responsible for British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. Jan Kesik has helped to develop the Canadian territory for the past five years and will continue to serve Eastern Canada. Kesik states, "I'm thrilled to have Adam join the Canadian sales team. I'm confident that Adam's wealth of experience in a variety of industries and geophysical roles will help GSSI continue to lead the GPR industry." 

Ground penetrating radar systems need tough tablets to endure harsh conditions

As a manufacturer of ground penetrating radar technology, GSSI is an organization that understands the rigour of field work, and their customers operate in environments that are as tough as it gets. GSSI's technology aids field work across industries, from construction sites to public utility work and even search and rescue missions following a natural disaster. Despite their reputation for industry leading software, they can't do it alone. GSSI relied on a custom controller that was hardened for field work. While it met the unique hardware requirements for their ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology, the controller couldn't keep up with the design cycle and the hardware too frequently became outdated. In a market that requires staying ahead of technological advancements, GSSI sought a new hardware partner to accompany their best-in-class software.

Latest in ground penetrating radar on display at World of Concrete

GSSI, the world's leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will be highlighting its latest GPR technology at the 2018 World of Concrete conference, to be held January 23-26, 2018, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, Booth #C3719. On display will be a new affordable UtilityScan GPR System, StructureScan Mini XT all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system, and the new Palm XT miniaturized GPR antenna for the StructureScan Mini XT. 

GSSI announces flexible, configurable ground penetrating radar system for utility detection

GSSI, a leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces the release of the UtilityScan Pro, the latest addition to the company’s popular UtilityScan GPR product line. UtilityScan systems are the industry standard for efficiently identifying and marking the location and depth of subsurface utilities, including gas, sewer, and communication lines. Featuring the SIR 4000 control unit, the UtilityScan Pro delivers the configurability and flexibility to address a wide range of utility applications.

Cost-effective site sampling tools for environmental assessments

Geophysical surveys can be the bedrock (pardon the pun) of today’s environmental projects, from locating abandoned underground storage tanks (USTs) and utilities, to complex mapping of geology in remedial investigations, to finding landfill boundaries and other buried unknown problems. In the past few decades, a variety of non-destructive testing methods have gained in popularity over expensive and time-consuming drilling and digging for environmental projects. Among these, the method of pairing ground penetrating radar (GPR) with electromagnetic (EM) induction instruments is one that shows great promise in significantly reducing survey time and costs.

GSSI announces LineTrac GPR accessory for detecting AC power and induced RF Energy in buried utilities

GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces the release of LineTrac, an accessory to the UtilityScan systems employing either the DF or HS antennas. The LineTrac allows users to detect AC power and induced RF energy present in buried utilities. By combining GPR data with a radio detection sensor, GSSI’s LineTrac accessory is capable of detecting extremely low amplitude AC signals associated with difficult to locate utilities.

GSSI’s new 350 HS Antenna uses HyperStacking technology to improve performance while meeting GPR emissions limits

GSSI has announced its 350 HS Antenna, which greatly improves the depth and data resolution performance of traditional real time sampling technologies. The 350 HS is designed for use with new digital HyperStacking technology, which allows users to see deeper targets and operate in conditions considered too “noisy” for conventional systems. Easily configurable, the 350 HS antenna is ideal for archaeology, geophysics, and utility locating applications.

GSSI to Host Advanced GPR Interpretation Course

GSSI, a manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will host a 3-day advanced GPR interpretation course at its brand new training facility in Nashua, New Hampshire. The course will be held October 23-25, 2015. It will be led by world-renowned GPR expert Dr. Larry B. Conyers, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Denver, along with GSSI training professionals. Users will learn about techniques and best practices for GPR data interpretation, trouble-shooting data quality issues in the field, and post-processing. Attendees will also receive an overview of GPR theory and data processing using RADAN software.

GSSI Announces Affordable RoadScan 30 GPR System for Road Inspection and Analysis

GSSI, has announced the new RoadScan 30, a safe, reliable and non-destructive GPR system designed for road inspection and analysis. RoadScan is an affordable and versatile tool, ideal for measuring pavement thickness, conducting base and sub-base evaluations, and measuring available asphalt prior to milling operations. Transportation professionals can collect hundreds of miles of pavement layer thickness data in a single day.

Ground Penetrating Radar Used In Investigation of Tunnel Deterioration

Just a few years after the opening of the Cumberland Gap Tunnel, a mountain tunnel that links Kentucky and Tennessee along US25E, highway officials noticed moderate to severe settling of the continuously reinforced concrete pavement, with many voids discovered beneath the pavement surface. The Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC) brought in a research team to find the root causes of the settlement issues by using ground penetrating radar (GPR) and hydro-geochemical water testing (HGWT). The use of the GPR equipment, manufactured by Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI), provided information that slashed the costs for the tunnel repair project by showing more precisely where repairs were necessary. The equipment is now an integral part of the long-term inspection process that will assist in finding other distressed areas within the tunnel if they arise in the future.
