Extracted from text ... RADAR'S EVOLUTION FROM RESEARCH TOOL TO MAINSTREAM APPLICATIONS Ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems have been in use for over 30 years, most commonly in geophysical applications, such as mapping bedrock layers and water tables. Because of advances in electronics and software, GPR has rapidly evolved into a valuable investigative tool for mainstream applications. Today GPR is used to study, evaluate and solve a wide range of infrastructure problems such as locating and mapping buried utilities; determining road layer thickness, material characteristics and subbase and sub-grade conditions; assessing the magnitude and location of deterioration inside reinforced concrete structures; and investigating the condition ..
