Groundvue 3 - Single channel

Like all Groundvue Ground Probing Radars, Groundvue 3 is user friendly and uses easy to operate dedicated software. Operating depth (measured in two- way travel time) and the distance between samples must be defined accurately. All other parameters can be reset after survey.

This is the single channel version of the traditional 4-channel multi-channel.  It offers the same superb range of antennas, the same fast data collection speed and the adasptability to be used from a trolley, on a vehicle or on a hand towed skid, depending on ground surface conditions.

Frequency Ranges

4GHz (using Groundvue 5
as 1 channel), 1.5GHz,
1GHz, 400MHz, 250MHz

Depth Range

Dependent on Frequencies used –

  • 4GHz: up to 0.5m in dry conditions
  • 1.5GHz: up to 2m in dry conditions
  • 1GHz: up to 2m in dry conditons
  • 400MHz: up to 5m in dry conditions or up to 3m in wet conditions
  • 250MHz: up to 10m in dry conditions or up to 5m in wet conditions.

Special Features

  • High Speed Operation
  • Arrayed Antennas
  • Fully Screened
  • Available as a trolley based system or for hand held operation (high frequencies only)
  • Suitable for towing behind or attachment to a survey vehicle
  • Simultaneous recording of GPS/Total Station data
  • Versatility – the same system can be used in different combinations for a range of tasks

Data Storage

Direct to solid disk

Resolution

High to very high (80mm @ 250MHz;
40mm @ 400MHz; 20mm @ 1GHz;
15mm @ 1.5GHz; 1mm @ 4GHz)

Ancillaries

  • Data Logger required for operation and initial data storage
  • A long term data storage system is essential
  • A basic 12V battery charger is needed to charge the radar batteries

Optional

  • Cable connector with vehicle cigarette lighter connection for saving datalogger batteries (not essential)
  • Analytical software – the ReflexW package – is also available. Details on request.
  • Groundvue 3 is also available as a multi-channel system with the same range of frequencies
