The new GPR is multi-channel, multi-frequency, double-polarized and lightweight. The system is dedicated to utility mapping on extensive areas that facilitates the whole process before, during and after data acquisition.
“I can’t wait to discover the new Stream UP because it has been announced as a product that will positively influence the GPR world for years to come,” said Jamie Bradburn, T2 Utility Engineers Field Operations Manager, a long-time user of Stream products.
The easiest way to capture underground utility assets
Stream UP is easy to assemble directly on site, needing only two people for transportation and assembly and just one person to make it operational. Furthermore, the total absence of contact with the ground dramatically reduces the stress and consequently maintenance. The system now has acquisition speed up to 150 km/h (with a suggested acquisition speed of 60 km/h) and data quality higher than ever with the new control unit Embedded Digital Antenna Driver – Stream (eDAD-S).
Thanks to the new control unit, dense array antennas and dynamic stacking, data quality has been excellently maintained even at high speed. The system is compact, still keeping IDS GeoRadar dual polarized antenna concept.
“Stream UP is the cutting-edge product for extensive utility mapping. Nothing has existed like this before,” said IDS GeoRadar President Alberto Bicci. “The innovative suspended modular frame is safer than ever thanks to shell structure and embedded anti-collision system. Furthermore Stream UP is compliant with traffic regulations and there is no need of escort vehicles.”
