Available in four center frequencies and four standard configurations, Noggin systems can collect data in any environment for any application. Noggins span the depths and resolutions required for subsurface investigations.Choose the combination of center frequency and configuration best suited to your application and terrain.
Powerful yet simple data collection
Adjust data collection parameters and easily view data in the field with the high resolution, sunlight visible, touchscreen digital video logger (DVL).
Rugged by design
Noggins are used in a wide range of environments, temperatures, and weather conditions.
Ultra-wide band (UWB) GPR antennas
Ground-coupled for maximum signal penetration and data quality.
Digital Video Logger
High resolution, sunlight visible, resistive touch screen with Wi-Fi and USB data transfer.
Flexible data collection
Change GPR parameters to optimize the survey. Adjust depth, step size, stacking, time window, grid size, triggering and more.
Wi-Fi mini-reportsEmail a report of line, depth slice or map view data to your customers or colleagues.
Depth slicingCollect grids of data and view depth slices right in the field.
Map viewUsing external GPS, display a plan map view of survey path, grids, field interpretations and flags.
Field interpretationsAdd color-coded interpretations and field flags with the touch of a finger.
Optional GPSIntegrated GPS for post-processing and export to Google EarthTM, CAD drawings & GIS databases.
The data collection software on the DVL 500 Noggins have default settings to get to work quickly; for line surveys just set the desired depth and start collecting.
For grid collection, the GPR operator sets the grid size and line spacing. The screen prompts the user to collect each line until the grid is complete. It is easy to work around obstructions, skip lines or recollect lines if required.
Once the grid is finished (or any time after at least 3 lines have been collected), the grid data can be processed into depth slices (right in the field!).
For users involved in unusual projects, Noggins also have custom settings to collect data with extreme values:
• Depths to 200 meters (320 m in ice)
• Triggering options include Odometer, Button and Free-Run modes
• Free Run in Time or Free-Run with Speed to collect data on water, snow or ice
• Grids up to 250 x 250m in size
• Zig-zag grid collection pattern
• Step Sizes from 5 millimeters to 5 meters
