GPRS Gets the Industrial

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) gets the industrial. GPRS has been specializing in subsurface locating for over 16 years. During these many years of service, we have had our hands on just about every sort of industrial site imaginable. From government projects to your backyard we are here to help you.

For this particular project GPRS was contacted by an electrical contractor at an industrial plant to locate private utilities and any unknowns that may lie beneath the ground. After scanning in some congested areas we were able to emerge from this project confident that the general contractor would have a safer dig.

“Time is a primary currency traded on any given construction project. At Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, our everyday efficiency in operations allows us to respond to the immediate needs of our customers, often within 24 hours or less.” (

Scan before you plan! This ensures worker safety and saves valuable time by targeting specific areas of concern. GPRS can also provide GPS reports overlaid on Google Earth or overlay information on pre-existing CAD files for future building plans. This is all done in a safe, time-efficient, non-destructive manner.

GPRS assists by giving a real-time depth view of subsurface hazards such as reinforcing, utilities, conduit, underground storage tanks, voids, etc. This reduces the likelihood of subsurface obstruction strikes during core drilling, saw cutting, trenching, soil boring, directional drilling, anchoring, and other sub-surface applications.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems uses the GSSI (Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc.) Sir-4000 technology in locating. GPRS also uses the RD-8100 Locator to locate live power and radio frequency (RF) signals underground. We can also detect utilities in or under concrete via induction or conduction with an exposed or known surface utility line.
