SCANNING FOR HIDDEN TARGETS
Concrete scanning is performed with a Ground Penetrating Radar system that emits one or more frequencies which are projected at nearly 1/3rd the speed of light into the concrete surface. The Ground Penetrating Radar system uses a sensitive antenna in the same device to capture waves as they are reflected back at the antenna. The radar waves reflect differently on anomalies inside the concrete allowing the technician to identify the anomalies as potential targets of interest.
Concrete scanning tools are used to locate a wide variety of targets in concrete pavement and structures. Metal has a high contrast with concrete pavement and stands out very clearly with the high-resolution tools used by Florida Concrete Scanning. In addition, Florida Concrete Scanning only uses the most advanced scanning tools that emit multiple frequencies instead of just one. The use of multiple frequencies allows for much greater accuracy and minimizes the possibility of failing to identify an important anomaly.
