Gepard GPR - Ground Penetrating Radar by OKM

OKM's Gepard GPR is a flexible, portable, powerful and one man operated ground penetrating radar to detect underground structures and anomalies. The detector utilizes an omnidirectional unshielded transmitting system to locate hidden items up to maximum depths of 40 meters. All recognized anomalies and underground objects are displayed immediately on screen of an Android Tablet PC.

Applications and detection capabilities

The ground penetrating radar is very versatile and can be used for many different applications. Its portability and easy handling makes the Gepard GPR a very unique measuring device for professional use in archeaology and industry as well as semi-professional use in the field of treasure hunting. No matter what kind of hidden objects you are looking for - as long as these items and structures aren't too small and of different material than the surrounding soil - the Gepard GPR can assist you in finding those targets.

You may use OKM's Gepard GPR as a portable unshielded ground penetrating radar that can be utilized for a wide range of applications like

  • Archaeological surveys
  • Industrial/Construction surveys
  • Treasure Hunting

The ground penetrating radar is able to detect objects and structures like

  • underground foundations, walls, basements and concrete reinforcements
  • hidden cavities, graves and sepulchers
  • buried drainage systems, feed lines, pipelines, conduits and cable harnesses
  • water level and underground rivers and aquifers
  • backfilled wells, galleries, trenches and dugouts
  • septic tanks, distribution boxes and drainage pipes
  • secret tunnels, bunkers and shelters
  • buried treasure chests, statues and caches

Scanning capabilities of Gepard GPR

The Gepard ground penetrating radar is using a multiple transmission frequency range starting at 60 MHz up to 300 MHz which is realized by adjustable telescopic antennas. It furthermore supports many automatic adjustments to optimize your ground surveys on specific soil types, which makes the handling of the Gepard ground radar very easy. So a non-destructive field examination is easily possible.

You just set your depth resolution and start surveying. The ground penetrating radar sends a signal into the underground and awaits the echo which will be received by the antennas to indicate the disturbance in the underground. These reflections will be measured and transferred to a Tablet PC, where a graphical 2d or 3d representation will be shown.


Operating the ground penetrating radar

The ground penetrating radar is powered by 8 AA batteries or - alternatively - by an optional external Power Pack for long lasting measurements. The Gepard GPR itself has not many controls except one button and the depth regulator, which is used to adjust the maximum penetration depth of the ground penetrating radar.
