Zond-12e georadar is a portable digital subsurface sounding radar carried by a single operator. The unit is designed for solving a broad range of geotechnical, geological, environmental, engineering and other tasks wherever nondestructive operational environmental monitoring is needed. In the sounding process, the operator is getting real-time information as a radiolocation profile (sometimes also referred to as radargram) on a display. At the same time, data are recorded on a hard disc for further use (processing, printout, interpretation, etc.). Examples of radiolocation profiles you can see here...

Complete georadar set includes a central unit with a Notebook-type computer* mounted on a special adjustable platform, a set of antennas for various sounding frequencies, software, various accessories.

Antennas are made dust/sprayproof and may be even immersed in water for a short time. Surface antennas have vinilplastic substrates with extremely high abrasion resistance.

All georadar parameters are computer controlled, therefore many hardware operation features are described here...

Use of a specific antenna is determined by a sounding task. Higher sounding frequency means better resolution, but with more significant electromagnetic wave attenuation in the environment, resulting in lower sounding depth; and vice versa - lower frequency may lead to a larger penetration depth at the sacrifice of poorer resolution. Moreover, lower frequency produces larger initial insensitivity area ("blind" zone) of a georadar.


* As a rule, a Notebook-type computer is not included in a standard supply. Users may use their own computers for cost saving purposes.
