Earth Radar’s Latro™ 3D GPR is a push-cart system designed for detailed scanning of road corridors, footpaths, fields and pavements to survey grade accuracy. The larger Sparas™ 3D GPR system enables traffic-speed scanning of road and airport pavements and other large paved surfaces. Both systems employ a sophisticated Australian-developed Noise-Modulated GPR (NM-GPR) approach to provide superior collection speed, penetration depth and data quality over conventional technologies, enabling far more complete site coverage and practical field operation.

Earth Radar’s experienced underground service location technicians are also trained and qualified in detecting cables, utilities, voids, pipes, conduit, and underground objects using conventional 2D GPR together with EMI techniques.
