GSSI's StructureScan Optical Brings Automatic Data Capture Capabilities to Radar Systems 4.7.04

Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. (GSSI), a provider of high quality, professional grade, ground penetrating radar systems, introduced StructureScan Optical, the newest member of the StructureScan family of products for the non-destructive evaluation of concrete structures. The StructureScan Optical system automatically records line positions and constructs a 3D file for direct viewing on the built-in display, enabling the user to quickly evaluate the three-dimensional data from depth slice and cross-section perspectives. This integrated system, GSSI's most advanced GPR technology yet, allows users to quickly image areas ranging in sizes from 1'x 1' to 4'x 4' using the automatic data capture (ADC) technology.

The StructureScan Optical package features the rugged, battery-powered SIR-3000 Data Acquisition System, an enhanced FCC-approved 1500 MHz antenna, and a redesigned data collection cart that is half the weight of the original StructureScan cart. The new cart is used with paper grids encoded with position information that is automatically recorded as the user collects data. The new system also allows the user to collect data to within 1" of walls - which is less than half the distance of other GPR systems. Existing users of GSSI's SIR-3000 Data Acquisition Systems will be able to add the new StructureScan Optical capabilities through a field upgrade.
