BakhtarRadar represents a new generation in GPR. Originally developed by Dr. Khosrow Bakhtar under the U.S. Air Force Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program to detect buried ordnance, it is now available for mining and tunneling applications for the first time.

BakhtarRadar can be used for volumetric imaging of subsurface deposits, other forms of underground anomaly definition and water exploration. Using a newly invented principle called "Forced Resonance," it offers much higher resolution and enhanced signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), facilitating ease of analysis and discrimination as compared to conventional GPR-- and in 4D.

Depth of penetration isup to, and even exceeding, 600 ft. (depending on antenna design). There are no limitations with respect to soils, lithology or degree of saturation of the geologic materials.

BakhtarRadar uses a ground-based system in which the antennae are pulled via a small tractor. The ground surface must therefore be sufficiently level as to permit the tractor to negotiate the surface and corners. Ground interrogation is triggered with a high resolution Global Positioning System (GPS), allowing transfer of the location coordinates onto any GIS system for site planning.

The technology is available through a service contract. The company will consider joint ventures in some cases.
