IDS GeoRadar Launches uNext Smart Software Platform
16th May 2017, Pisa, Italy
Based on the Opera Duo Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), uNext is the all-in-one solution to take utility detection to the next level.
IDS GeoRadar, a leading provider of multi-frequency, multi-channel Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and Interferometric technology solutions (IBIS) worldwide, today launched uNext, an all-in-one, smart software platform which exploits the most advanced technologies and methodologies in the market.
The uNext platform is based on the Opera Duo Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) leveraging robustness, data quality and intuitiveness for unparalleled utility location and mapping. Designed to operate directly on site maximizing user experience and intuitiveness, uNext leverages any GNSS and/or TPS – to provide the best geographical positioning of multiple utility targets in a very short time; integration with cable locators – to quickly and easily collect information on cable/pipe positioning; and tomography – to create an even more accurate, faster 3D reconstruction of the underground utility network and merge this information with any existing cartographies. The solution also allows to export survey reports, including extracted maps and targets, directly in the field.
The platform will soon leverage other functionality including the ability to:
- Ease interpretation of underground detected targets by adding visual information of recorded soil objects;
- Transfer the identified targets to CAD or GIS maps for professional SUE / utility mapping;
- Represent the existing cartography of the surveyed area and integrate it with utility targets and soil objects;
- Visualize underground detected objects in augmented reality
