VIY3-500 Ground Penetrating Radar


Dear Colleagues! Transient Technologies has developed and mass-produced a new generation of GPR - VIY5. VIY5 GPR replaced the VIY3 series.

Instead of VIY3-500, now order VIY5-600

Ground penetrating radars VIY3 discontinued. Technical support and the supply of components for the VIY3 series do not stop.

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 medium 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;


  • Real time signal pre-processing (Online filtering)
  • Automatic-Calibrated online filters
  • Wide range of post processing filters
  • Increased dynamic range due to digital traces-stacking
  • High signal-to-noise ration due to innovative Telbin technology
  • Automatic recognition of connected antenna
  • Antenna to laptop connection through WiFi or USB
  • All GPR components (antennas system, electronic modules, battery, etc.) are assembled in a single case
  • No additional Control Unit. Any Windows-based computer (laptop) can be used to work with VIY3 GPR
  • Direct connecting of Measuring wheel and GPS to antenna unit
  • Antenna unit can be either mounted on the Handcart Cart-36 or towed along the ground by transport belt
  • Bidirectional odometer. User can perform sounding in both directions: back and forth
  • Low power consumption: not less than 8 hours of working session before next charging
  • Sealed lead acid batteries permitted for air-carrying
  • Non- inflatable solid wheels of the Handcart
  • Durable antenna body made of fiberglass plastic
  • Replaceable bottom protector to use antenna without the Handcart
  • Each antenna set is ready to use without purchasing any additional accessories
