VIY3-500 Ground Penetrating Radar


The VIY3-500 Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) can be used for location and analysis of underground objects using electromagnetic pulse radiation up to 4 meters depth (or thickness). The VIY3-500 GPR is suitable for searching of both metallic and dielectric objects (pipes, communications, voids, building constructions, etc.).

Basic applications: 

  • Search for pipes and communication items;
  • Examination of engineering construction (building walls and basements, etc);
  • Search for reinforcement rods in building constructions;
  • Search for hidden and immured objects;


  • Measuring wheel (Odometer) and GPS can be connected directly to antenna unit;
  • All components including antenna system, electronic modules, battery, etc., are assembled in a single fiberglass case;
  • Battery, in order to lighten the antenna unit, is designed in separate case;
  • Antenna unit is connected to laptop by USB data cable through the battery case. This solution ensures that antenna does ideally match the electronics, the whole device is highly reliable and easy to use;
  • Battery case can be placed in the operator's backpack or mounted on a Cart-36 handcart;
  • Antenna unit can be mounted on the Handcart Cart-36, pulled by transport belt (along the ground) or holded by the handle (during inspecting the walls);
  • Spectrum randomizing (quasi-random sampling sequence) - the improved interference immunity, especially against the coherent interferences;
  • Increased dynamic range due to digital traces-stacking;
  • Real time signal pre-processing;
  • Low power consumption - not less than 8 hours of working session before the next charging;
  • With standard WiFi or USB connection, user can choose any Windows running computer to work with VIY3 GPR. It can be either netbook, or modern models of laptops with a 12-core processor.
  • Antenna frequency: 500 MHz
  • Analogue-to-Digital Converter range: 18 bit
  • Dynamic range: not less than 135 dB
  • Data acquisition rate: up to 55 traces per second
  • Survey window: 32, 50, 64, 80 ns
  • Maximum number of samples per trace: 1 000
  • Trace stacking number: up to 300
  • Depth of sounding: up to 4 m (determined by soil properties)
  • Spatial resolution: better than 0.18 m
  • Trigger mode: single, internal, external 
  • File size of the profile: up to 1 000 000 traces 
  • Interface: USB2 or WiFi
  • Build-in inclinometer
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 325x 210x 156 mm
  • Weight: 2.5 kg
  • Operating temperature range: -20C to 40C
  • Continuous operation time: not less than 8 hours

The VIY3-500 GPR set includes:

Antenna unit

Antenna unit with 500 MHz frequency is placed in a durable fiberglass housing. The unit has DP connectors to be connected to USB cable, for measuring wheel and/or GPS receiver.



Battery Case

Battery case can be placed in backpack or mounted on the Cart-36 handcart. The case has connectors to connect DP and Data cables.



Handcart Cart-36

Foldable handcart allows a single operator to carry out a quick examination of large areas. The measurements with Cart-36 GPR can be easier and faster. The cart has durable and reliable construction, universal mounting for laptop, 12 inch wheels, built-in odometer. Cart-36 has a minimum size in the folded state.



VO-20 Measuring Wheel

Measuring wheel (odometer) VO-20 was designed to determine passed distance during a GPR profile acquisition. Odometer can be mounted to the body of antenna unit and electrically connected to the antenna by special connector. 

  • Calibration is not required;
  • Dust and mud protection;
  • Mounting to the antenna unit without any extra tools;
  • Compatible with all types of antenna units.


Battery Charger

Reliable, sealed charger for charging a biult-in battery.



DP Cable

The cable to connect antenna unit to battery case.



Data Cable

The cable to connect battery case to USB port of your computer.



Transport Belt



User's Manual






Durable and comfortable backpack for transportation of all components, except the antenna unit. It has many sections, including protected one for laptop.




Portable shelf for laptop

Foldable shelf was designed to be attached to the backpack and to let the operator carry out a comfortable work with a laptop.




The VIY3-500 GPR is supplied with different options.
