GSSI, a manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces the release of the UtilityScan HS, the newest product in its popular UtilityScan GPR system line. The UtilityScan line is the industry standard for efficiently identifying and marking the location and depth of subsurface utilities, including gas, sewer, and communication lines.

The newly released UtilityScan HS model incorporates the 350 HS antenna, a state-of-the-art digital antenna designed with features GSSI’s patented HyperStacking™ technology. HyperStacking technology greatly improves the depth and data resolution performance over traditional RTS technologies.

HyperStacking is a revolutionary real-time sampling (RTS) technique patented by GSSI, which greatly improves the receive performance of a GPR system while maintaining the measurement speed and radiated emission limits. By incorporating the 350 HS antenna, the UtilityScan HS deliver higher data resolution, better RF noise immunity, and better depth penetration than traditional GPR antennas.

The 350 HS can reach depths of up to 40 feet. The UtilityScan HS also provides advanced signal processing tools such as stacking, signal floor tracking and background removal.

Ideal for detection and mapping of utility pipes, as well as shallow engineering and environmental applications, the UtilityScan HS effortlessly integrates with GPS via an intuitive user interface. The UtilityScan HS allows for real-time data collection, with a back-up cursor and cross-hair cursor that allow the user to accurately locate targets. Additionally, the new GPR system allows users to utilize multiple different techniques to calculate the depth of targets, for added flexibility.

The UtilityScan HS is purpose-built for utility detection with a range cart configurations to meet individual users’ needs. All UtilityScan configurations deliver exceptionally high-quality data and are rugged enough to withstand years of field usage.
