GeoScan Subsurface Surveys is pleased to announce that we are the only provider of Xradar™ Enhanced Concrete Scanning on the West Coast.

Xradar™ is an advanced imaging capability utilizing GPR technology which allows you to map and locate objects that conventional GPR cannot. Xradar™ allows you to scan the ground for subsurface objects and is commonly used in applications across construction, archaeology, geophysics, and the military.

What is Xradar™?

​The scanning process works by sending high-frequency electromagnetic waves into the ground from a transmitting antenna. These waves are reflected back as they bounce off objects, which forms an image of the subsurface.

This method can be used on a wide range of surface materials including rock, soil, ice, water, pavements, and other concrete structures. Unlike conventional GPR, Xradar™ can also distinguish between multiple layers of steel reinforcement, locate objects hidden below steel, as well as accurately measuring the size and depth of steel reinforcement.

Why choose Xradar™?

​While conventional GPR is an unregulated industry, Xradar™ technicians are highly trained and have an advanced understanding and knowledge, meaning they can accurately interpret the data to form a clear picture of the subsurface.

When used for scanning concrete the accuracy and range far outshines that of any other method, while scanning errors are reduced to less than 1%, compared to the 25% typical for the industry.

Using Xradar™ saves you time, prevents injuries, and vastly reduces costly errors that can happen as the result of poor scanning.
