The VIY3-500 ground penetrating radar (GPR) is used for location and analysis of underground anomalies using electromagnetic pulse radiation. The GPR VIY3-500 is suitable for searching of both metal and dielectric targets (pipes, voids, building constructions etc.).

Most Useful for: utilities (0-4m depth):

  • Searching for buried utilities;
  • Engineering assessment;


Basic applications:

  • Engineering and communication objects searching
  • Engineering construction examination (building basis, dams, etc.)
  • Man-caused accident areas investigation
  • Search of reinforcement rods in building unit
  • Search of hiding places and other building in objects



  • Odometer and GPS connect right to a GPR. GPR itself connects to a computer via WiFi or directly with a USB cable. Thus, a georadar antenna represents a complete monoblock georadar. The solution ensures that antenna and electronics are perfectly matched; the device is highly reliable and easy to operate
  • The accumulator is in a backpack at the operator that has facilitated the measuring module
  • Transportation by a belt (on a ground) and for the handle (on a wall) is possible
  • Spectrum randomizing (quasi-random sampling sequence) – interference immunity improvement especially to coherent influences
  • Increased dynamic range owing to digitally stacking of received signals
  • Real time signal pre-processing
  • Low power consumption – at least 8 hours working session without charging necessity
  • Thanks to the standard USB connection or the WiFi one, the user can choose any computer to work with VIY GPR. It can be either netbook, or modern models with a 12-core processor
