Acquire data from the subsurface quickly,
safe and efficient

In most cases, surveys with GPR (Georadar) or Magnetometer are hard work and can be very dangerous
for field personnel due to hostile environments and harsh weather conditions.

This is where professional drones for automated remote sensing come in.
They are compact, easily transported in a car and able to fly
autonomously at low altitudes with high accuracy.

This approach ensures the acquisition of data in less time than traditional trolley or hand-held methods.

GPR and Magnetometers integrated on drones allow them to see through the ground surface,
ice, rocks, fresh water in hazardous environments without compromising the safety of personnel,
Providing an efficient and high-performance solution.

EXAMPLES OF APPLICATIONS

TOTAL INTEGRATION WITH DRONE
Thanks to the SkyHub, we can now integrate sensors such as Georadar and Magnetometers on drones like DJI Matrice 300/350 RTK
and with the help of the radar distometer in the Drone Integration Kit, we can safely fly
these sensors a few centimeters above the ground, following the contour of the ground.

The use of Georadar and Magnetometers on drones facilitates and makes normal acquisitions much faster and more accurate
done normally by trolley, especially in rough terrain and inaccessible areas.

Sensor data is logged on board and streamed to the ground via the drone’s radiolink to enable
to the operator to detect any “anomalies” in real-time, the mission is handled fully automatically with the supplied software
UGCS

HOW IT WORKS.

The system consists of a UAV integrated with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) or Magnetometer.
Full integration is ensured by adding the SkyHub on-board computer to the system.
The drone flight is planned and managed using the full functionality of UgCS.
You can choose between an off-the-shelf system with drone or Georadar and single Magnetometers
to be used with classical methodology(trolley or handheld)

WHY USE AIRBORNE GPR+DRONE

The webinar provides an introduction to the use of airborne GPR on drones-the possibilities offered by the integrated GPR+drone system. The webinar covers the basics of using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) with a drone:

What is a GPR and why use it with a drone?
Planning and flying a drone survey mission with GPR (in simulation mode)
Demonstration of data analysis using data acquired during surveys: – pipeline inspection – location of a World War II fighter plane lost in Greenland
Questions and Answers

APPLICATIONS

DETECTION OF SMALL OBJECTS

Radar Systems Zond-12 and Drone 1000 at GPR is applicable to detect small objects with a diameter as small as 8 cm and pipes/cables with a diameter as small as 3 cm. The integrated GPR+drone system can be used either by drone or for ground surveys if conditions do not allow the use of a drone.

FRESHWATER BATHYMETRY

The integrated GPR-drone system can measure water depth or profile the bottom of rivers, lakes, freshwater ponds up to 15 meters deep.

Advantages-ability to work even when the water is frozen or the water surface is partially covered with ice. Compared with bathymetry using a boat (equipped with a depth sounder), the drone with GPR offers better accuracy in following survey lines due to its built-in GPS and automated flight. Also, in most cases, a drone makes it much easier to deliver the necessary equipment to the desired area. More details on GPR in the air for bathymetry >>>

The result shown in Figure 3 was collected with the drone flying at an altitude of 2 meters above the water surface, speed 2 m/s. Airborne GPR datasets. >>>

GEOLOGICAL SURVEYS FOR STRATA PROFILING

Layer profiling is a standard activity that must be performed prior to any serious area development or construction work. The standard technique is to drill dozens of holes or conduct a GPR survey on carts.

The integrated GPR+drone system offers increased labor productivity and enables safer working conditions for personnel in rough terrain.

GPR makes it possible to find any potentially dangerous underground streams or lakes.

Data collected by GPR on the drone flying at an altitude of 1 meter over an asphalt-covered parking lot. The layers are clearly visible.

MAPPING OF UNDERGROUND INFRASTRUCTURE

Mapping underground infrastructure is an important task before starting any construction work on previously developed land or in cases where there is a lack of documentation and actual maps for underground infrastructure.

Geophysics, Geophysics

TRUE TERRAIN FOLLOWING

Acquire the best possible data by flying the GPR as low as possible mimicking the surface relief. The addition of an altimeter to the system will allow flying in True Terrain Following mode.

UgCS SkyHub allows the drone to fly at low altitudes (down to 1 meter) without the need to import an accurate DEM (Digital Elevation Model) height map into UgCS.
