Ground Penetrating Radar Market Trends




  • Ground penetrating radar technology improvements for mineral exploration to accelerate market growth




Exploration advancement is driving the market CAGR for ground penetration radar. GPR penetration is affected by equipment design, antenna frequency, and, most importantly, the electrical properties of the subsurface.


GPR's increased penetration is likely to increase its use in mineral extraction and exploration. Recent advancements in deep radar system signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) with real-time sampling receivers have more than doubled the penetration of GPR in electrically resistive environments. Furthermore, when compared to other radar environments, most mineral exploration requires deeper penetration. A 100 MHz antenna can penetrate 15m and, in most cases, less than 5m. Most modern low-frequency (100 MHz) GPR systems pulse around 400 V into the antennas, implying that 12,800 V is required to double penetration.


Additionally, increasing the SNR of the radar system is a more effective way of gaining range with GPR. Recent advancements in deep radar system SNR with real-time sampling receivers have more than doubled GPR penetration in electrically resistive environments. Furthermore, the US military upgrades its equipment using cutting-edge technology to bring about revolutionary change. The United States Army intends to place ground-penetrating radar on a drone capable of scanning previously inaccessible areas. They're hoping to incorporate this technology into a chip so that it can display a digital map of its surroundings.


Ground Penetrating Radar Market Segment Insights:


Ground Penetrating Radar Type Insights


The Ground Penetrating Radar Market segmentation, based on type includes handheld systems, cart-based systems, and vehicle-mounted systems. Over the forecast period, the handheld systems are anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR. The field of concrete inspection greatly benefits from portable GPR technology. They can be utilised to quickly determine the thickness of concrete slabs and locate voids, rebars, conduits, and post-tension cables. Their compact design makes concrete inspection simple in small spaces or above the head survey locations, and their ruggedized plastic casing and wheels ensure long-lasting performance. They have a mobile tool that combines the antenna, positioning system, and control unit into one unit for concrete inspection. Users can move between job sites with ease because the entire series is devoid of cables, boxes, or other large pieces of equipment
