Engineered for Resolution
One thing is to invest in the latest mobile GPR technology, the other is to figure out how such a high tech, high value and high accuracy system will be deployed from a vehicle travelling up to full carriageway speed. The challenges were numerous in meeting the best practice objectives:
- system must be safe
- system must be deployable within millimetres of carriageway surface
- system must be deployable remotely from vehicle cab
- system must have fixed offsets from the positioning reference
- system must be protected in the event of striking debris on carriageway
Having been directed towards other intricate solutions from around the world, LandScope decided to retain a local mechanical engineer and fabrication team to design and build a bespoke solution. After much head scratching and prototype testing, the LandScope MGPR deployment system emerged!
