Standard Utility Locating System - Made in USA by US Radar - Utility and Archeological Ground Penetrating Radar Applications

The US Radar Q5C GPR subsurface imaging system is a buried utility location workhorse. It is easy to use yet it can be expanded and configured for other applications and needs down the road. With its unique range of integrated technologies, it is the most powerful GPR on the market today for locating utilities up to 5m deep at high resolution.

The Q5C has a number of features to make this the ideal ground penetrating radar for your use. Smart Gain 2 uses dual amplification stages to automatically apply more gain to deeper signals than shallow signals. This enables much higher gain levels than are possible with conventional techniques, making deeper objects visible that would not otherwise be able to be located. With an easy to fold rough terrain cart and self-calibrating system it's easy to transport, set-up and use in the most hostile environments too.
The software system is designed for accuracy and ease of use as well. With SmartStack and StreetSmart Real-Time Processing software, you can get all data on screen as you go. This gives you quality information and eliminates the need for post-processing. Add to this the Auto-Configure and Depth Calibration and you've got an easy to use system from the outset to the end.
