Forensics & Public Safety

IDS GeoRadar technology perfectly suits for Forensics and Public Safety application.

GPR’s unique sensitivity to non-metallic structures embedded in soils, rocks and building materials results in GPR seeing use in diverse applications such as search and rescue, tunnel and cavities location. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) has become an important forensic tool used by law enforcement agencies to perform several types of searches such as for buried bodies, hiding places and objects. In most cases this crucial evidence would mean the difference between proving a case or having a lesser charge applied due to lack of incriminating evidence. A Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is able to remotely and non-invasively detect underground anomalies when all other instruments typically react to magnetic fields and are hence not able to find non-metallic objects. In addition security personnel and border patrols use ground penetrating radar in various configurations to detect and locate the presence of tunnels or detect movement near exterior walls or in buildings. This technology is key to helping protect borders to secure areas.

Interferometric family products are also effectively used for civil structure vibration, deformation and post-event analysis.
