Development of an innovative ground penetrating radar for recognition and identification of subsurface buried objects


Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has proven to be the best candidate for non- invasive sub-surface analysis. In response to specific limitations of existing systems, the SMART-RAD project intends to develop an innovative technology able to set forth the conditions for a widespread commercialisation of GPR tools within a broad range of industrial sectors where efficient underground inspection is required. SMART-RAD will be able to reliably detect buried objects and will have easy on-field data interpretation capability, such to be used by untrained operators. The system will have a broad class of potential users in the construction and re-development industry, as efficient and cheap alternative to conventional ground inspection methods in construction or de-commissioning sites, reducing the risk of damages and accidents during excavation operations.
