  • pulseEKKO® Ultra Receiver
    pulseEKKO® Ultra Receiver – The Ultra Receiver uses the latest in GPR technology to allow users to see up to 2 times deeper....

  • The new pulseEKKO® Ultra Receiver builds on the world-renowned capability of the pulseEKKO® GPR brand. Data acquisition is now thousands of times faster than before. This has huge implications for collecting GPR data:

    1. Stack GPR traces up to 65,536 times, with little to no reduction in collection speed.
    2. Reduce the noise floor to see GPR signals up to 100 times smaller than before.
    3. Achieve up to double the depth of penetration.
    4. Collect 32-bit, high dynamic range data to see small, subtle, and real GPR signals.

    All this means incredible opportunities for research and advancements in existing GPR applications.

    Random background noise limits GPR systems from detecting the weak signals from deep in the subsurface. Using the increased speed to stack the GPR traces more times results in deeper GPR penetration than ever before. Stacking decreases the random noise floor and increases the imaging depth. The Ultra Receiver stacks thousands of times, allowing GPR practitioners to see GPR signals 100 times smaller than before. High stacking increases the dynamic range of the data from 16-bit to 32-bit.
