Radiodetection’s RD1000+ provides high-performance subsurface imaging for buried utilities in a rugged and competitively priced Ground Penetrating Radar system. Designed for the utility industry, the RD1000+ features a wide-band sensor capable of detecting plastic and ceramic utilities at depths of up to 8m / 27’ deep. Once a utility is detected, the operator can simply reverse the cart to switch the RD1000+ into Locate Mode and determine the utility’s depth and position, simplifying utility identification. 

Features & Benefits

Detect non-conductive pipes and ducts

Ground Penetrating Radar can detect ceramic and plastic pipes and ducts which would otherwise require tracer wire or sondes to detect using an electromagnetic locator.

Locate and mark utilities in a single pass

Simply reverse the cart to enter locate mode to measure position & depth and characterize signals to ensure consistent surveying.

Survey Reporting

Capture radar images direct from the screen and export using the dedicated ImageView software for analysis and use in survey reports.

Designed to operate in almost any weather or terrain

Large, bright, real-time display allows operation even in bright daylight. Light-weight, rugged and weatherproof (IP66) system designed for use across challenging terrain. Optional larger wheels can be fitted to ease use across soft or rough ground.


The RD1000+ can be assembled on-site in less than two minutes, and can be dismantled without requiring tools, allowing compact storage and safe transportation. Soft and hard cases are available for transportation of the display unit.

Advanced digital signal processing

Digital filtering helps the operator to eliminate unwanted signals and ground returns, while color palettes allow users to pick out even small utilities amongst differing subsurface materials and soil types.

Designed for easy maintenance

The RD1000+’s modular design allows for replacement of a number of the key component parts without requiring specialist tools. Radiodetection’s service network provides quick and cost-effective repairs for sensors and displays.
