GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, will be at the ConExpo-Con/Agg show in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 10-14, 2020. Stop by booth #S64507 in South Hall to see the latest from GSSI for the transportation market and GSSI’s industry-leading systems for the utility and concrete markets. They’ll be highlighting the PaveScan RDM 2.0, StructureScan Mini XT and UtilityScan.
GSSI’s PaveScan® RDM 2.0, an asphalt density assessment tool, provides accurate real-time measurements to ensure pavement life and quality. PaveScan® 2.0 incorporates a new sensor design built specifically for the extremes of the asphalt paving environment, foldable deployment arms with high-visibility for worksite safety and has a warm-up time of under one minute when ambient temperature is over 70° F. PaveScan RDM is ideal for uncovering problems that occur during the paving process, including poor uniformity and significant variations in density. By avoiding these problems, PaveScan RDM helps avoid such premature failures as road raveling, cracking, and deterioration along joints.
Visitors to the booth will also see the StructureScan Mini XT all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system. This system is ideal for locating rebar, conduits, post-tension cables, and voids. It can help identify structural elements, including pan decking and concrete cover, and can also provide real-time determination of concrete slab thickness. Along with the Mini XT, the Palm XT Antenna will be at the show. This is a miniaturized GPR antenna that is designed to greatly enhance the capabilities of the StructureScan Mini XT. The handheld Palm XT antenna turns a basic Mini XT into an advanced system by giving users unparalleled access in tightly spaced areas and enabling overhead scanning.
For the utility market, GSSI will be displaying the UtilityScan. This GPR system is compact in size making it extremely portable and easy to maneuver in tight survey areas. With a robust new wireless antenna that can handle required data rates, UtilityScan is ruggedly built to withstand challenging field conditions. The electrical design uses GSSI’s patented HyperStacking technology, which has proven to increase depth penetration in challenging soils, while also providing high near-surface data resolution. UtilityScan has a backup Ethernet connection if Wi-Fi is not allowed or desired at a site.
