Utility supplies: Antenna improves depth, data resolution performance

utility supplies GSSI

Utility supplies: GSSI, a manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces its 350 HS Antenna, which greatly improves the depth and data resolution performance of traditional real time sampling technologies. The 350 HS is designed for use with new digital HyperStacking™ technology, which allows users to see deeper targets and operate in conditions considered too “noisy” for conventional systems. Easily configurable, the 350 HS antenna is ideal for archaeology, geophysics, and utility locating applications.

The 350 HS antenna meets even the most stringent GPR emissions regulations, including those of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), while operating at similar or faster speeds than conventional systems.

The state-of-the-art 350 HS digital antenna offers a clearer image than a traditional GPR antenna and a 50 percent improvement in depth penetration. It is designed to work seamlessly with GSSI’s SIR® 4000 control unit and with the customized Panasonic Toughpad® FZ-G1 control unit used with the UtilityScan® DF system. With a center frequency of 350 MHz and a depth range of 0-12 meters (0-40 feet), the compact 350 HS weighs 5 kilograms (11 pounds) and is roughly 33.5x31x15 centimeters.
