Military and Security

GSSI at the Forefront of Protection Technology

Military, security personnel and border patrols use ground penetrating radar in various configurations to detect unexploded ordnance, to locate the presence of tunnels or detect movement near exterior walls or in buildings. This technology is key to helping protect borders and aid military operations in helping secure areas.

Locate UXOs Using Ground Penetrating Radar

Military personnel use ground penetrating radar to locate UXOs in the ground. Note that this technology is best suited for detecting metallic targets and may not be suited for detection of certain types of mines.

beneath the road surface. The target on the left
is parallel to the direction of travel of the antenna
and the target on the right is perpendicular.

Locate and Trace Tunnels using Ground Penetrating Radar

Border patrol, security and law enforcement professionals use ground penetrating radar to locate and trace tunnels concealed in secure areas. Depending on soil conditions and tunnel diameter, GPR will detect the depth and path of tunnels buried deep below the surface.

LifeLocator® III+ - Sensing Life In Motion

The LifeLocator® is internationally accepted as the standard in rescue and recovery when disasters like earthquakes, floods, explosions or similar occurrences result in victims trapped under debris piles, both natural and man-made debris as a result of structural collapses.
