The Noggin GPR systems are extremely adaptable and perform to a high quality, so you’ll be assured workers can detect underground utilities before you begin to dig quickly and effectively. For accurate GPR data, Noggin systems have an outstanding record, performing to a great standard even in the most challenging conditions.

The Noggin is available in four frequencies – 100, 250, 500 and 1000 – and four configurations – SmartCart, SmartTow, SmartHandle and SmartChariot – meaning Noggin Systems can support any application in any location. The differing combinations of the centre frequencies and configurations ensure the user can adapt their Noggin System to a particular environment and application, collecting appropriate data from subsurface surveys.

Noggin Sensors

Noggin sensors integrate patented antennas that utilise differing frequencies. The lower the frequency, the deeper the penetration. High frequencies result in high resolution surveys of shallow terrain.

The low frequency of the Noggin 100 Antenna provides GPR proficiency with a centre frequency of 100 MHz. The system is easily transportable with its removable antennas and is remarkably simple to use, making it one of the most popular sensors of the Noggin systems.

Noggin Configurations

Take your GPR into any environment and terrain with the diverse range of Noggin configurations, each intricately designed to meet the right specifications of varying applications. With the integrated durable skin plate located towards the bottom of each Noggin, users can be rest assured that their system won’t be damaged on rough surfaces and will smoothly transverse across any surface, sustaining ground-coupling for the ultimate signal penetration. 

Designed for hand-tow surveying, the Noggin SmartTow configuration is suitable to be used on smooth to rough terrain, such as grassy, brush covered or rocky surfaces.

Top Features

  • A wheel odometer to trigger data acquisition at default or user-defined intervals (step size) to provide uniform data coverage
  • A bi-directional odometer that triggers data acquisition in one direction and, in the other direction, provides a back-up arrow to easily pinpoint the location of objects found on the survey line
  • Sensors & Software’s unique DynaQ feature automatically adjusts data acquisition rates to the survey speed; providing dynamic stacking to maximize data quality
  • Fibreglass handle to eliminate interference
  • Rugged treaded tire for challenging terrains
  • Noggin sensor
  • Optical odometer for precise positioning

Options

  • GPS to provide geo-referenced coordinates linked to the data
  • Longer cables to enable the DVL to be set in a fixed position while the GPR sensor is moved
  • Batteries of different sizes and capacities depending on field time or portability requirements
  • Brackets to quickly swap between the Noggin 100, 250, 500 and 1000 systems
