Stream C

Ground penetrating radar for real time underground utility mapping

Stream C

Stream C is the compact array solution for real-time 3D mapping of underground utilities and features. Thanks to the increased level of accuracy, provided by a massive antenna array, Stream C is able to detect pipes and cables automatically.

Daily use of Stream C is aided by ergonomic features including electronic ride height adjustment, options to tow manually or with a small vehicle, and a motor assisted drive wheel.

Stream C is available in both Basic and Advanced configurations.

The system features:

  • Massive array of 34 antennas in two polarisations: An accurate 3D reconstruction of the underground utility network is created in a single scan.
  • Automatic Pipe Detection (APD): Real-time automatic detection of buried pipes and cables.
  • Compact size: Stream C’s small dimensions enable it to survey areas inaccessible to larger array systems while maintaining the same accuracy.
  • Robust construction: Built to the highest standards and with robust materials so that it can be used in harsh, demanding environments.
  • 3D radar tomography: Real-time tomography on a GPS or total station assisted cartographic background.
  • Professional subsurface survey: Quickly produce subsurface GIS based digital maps when pipes, cables and buried objects are automatically transferred to CAD and GIS formats.

Benefits of the Stream C include:

  • High Productivity: Surveys only need to be performed in one direction to ensure optimal detection of both longitudinal and transversal pipes;
  • No advanced training needed: The system automatically detects and locates the position of pipes in real time and displays them on screen;
  • Reduced user fatigue: Thanks to electronic ride height adjustment and a motor assisted drive wheel;
  • Facilitates large surveys: The system can be towed manually or with a small vehicle, increasing the acquisition speed (up to 6 km/h).
