GPR for Utility Detection

Prior to the use of GPR, utilities constructed of plastic, terracotta, concrete, non-toneable fiber, asphalt composite and other materials were generally considered non-locatable.
This stemmed from the fact that the generally accepted method of non-intrusive detection incorporated the use of electromagnetic devices which cannot locate non-metallic / non-conductive underground objects.
As a result GPR became main-stream for utility detection and mapping when MALÅ Geoscience introduced the MALÅ Easy Locator in the early 2000’s. The Easy Locator revolutionized the use of radar, introducing GPR at a price point half that of other systems available at the time. The user-interface broke every barrier in terms of ease of use in the field and became the GPR standard and selected tool by locating professionals.
The MALÅ Easy Locator HDR (High Dynamic Range) and MALÅ PRO (Professional) HDR provide unparalleled clarity and functionality when collecting data in the field. Ease of use with both of these systems allows for rapid data acquisition in the field and offsite data analysis, where required.
