The use of GPR can be an advantage for search and rescue crews, police, investigators, and disaster response teams. For forensics and security purposes, GPR can be used to locate buried weapons, evidence, or victims. It has the capabilities of detecting underground tunnels and shallow graves. During disaster recovery, GPR can be used to locate and rescue buried victims.
GPR is completely safe for workers, victims, and the environment. No dangerous materials are involved in the use of GPR. The use of sound waves provides a safety advantage. Other advantages of GPR include its ability to detect metallic and non-metallic objects. GPR is also used to detect objects in ice, fresh water, snow, and dirt.
GPR has many uses beyond construction assessment purposes, one of which is for forensics and security. Its ability to "see" unseen objects makes GPR perfect for investigation crews, police, and disaster recovery crews to use during their operations.
