Advancing Ground Penetrating Radar Technology

University of Bath
Led by Dr S.R. Pennock

The aim of this work package is to advance GPR technologies specifically in support of the multi-sensor device, for deployment both alone at the surface and in combination with in-pipe GPR transmitters / receivers. Novel arrays of GPR antennas and their integration with the multi-sensor arrays will be researched to increase the probability of target detection and accuracy of location information (in both plan and depth).

The anticipated deliverables of this project include recommendations on antenna deployment strategies for surface and in-pipe deployment and to create specifications and a prototype in-pipe device that meets current standards for safe, practical applications in sewers.
