Reference project: DEEPER (Deep Penetration Radar)


Internal development of a low frequency GPR for deep penetration. Utilization of the PIRA Technology for application in industrial/science projects.

The successful development of the PIRA technology for space applications and the negative decision of ESA to give the MARS EXPRESS GPR contract to NASA-JPL pushed us to change the new technology to a GPR sensor for Earth applications. DEEPER was realized. It was successfully applied on rock surveys in Canada, on ground water detection projects in Abu Dhabi and first trials on Glacier bedrock measurements in the Swiss Alps providing important information for HERA development, the Helicopter GPR.
