The Gepard GPR is a very flexible and powerful Ground Penetrating Radar for the detection of underground objects like pipelines, cavities, cables, conduits, tunnels, bunkers and foundations.
The Gepard ground penetrating radar uses an omnidirectional unshielded transmission system to reach maximum depths up to 40 meters (131 ft). The agile and compact unit can easily be operated by a single user via Android Tablet PC.

Knights Templar Treasure Hunt: Archaeological Expedition to Poland
OKM followed an expedition to Poland searching the underground near and in the church for graves of the Knights Templar. Find out what was detected with the ground scanners and ...
The RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging) of the Gepard GPR 3D sends a signal into the ground and awaits the reflection or echo of the signal to detect sub-surface anomalies.
Detectable Objects and Structures
underground walls, basements and concrete reinforcements
hidden cavities, graves and sepulchers
water level and underground rivers and aquifers
buried pipelines, conduits and cable harnesses
backfilled wells, galleries, trenches and dugouts
septic tanks, distribution boxes and drainage pipes
secret tunnels, bunkers and shelters
buried treasure chests, statues and caches
Optimization of Ground Surveys
The Gepard ground penetrating radar is using a multiple transmission frequency range starting at 60 MHz up to 300 MHz which is realized by adjustable telescopic antennas. It furthermore supports many automatic adjustments to optimize your ground surveys on specific soil types, which makes the handling of the Gepard ground radar very easy. You just set your depth resolution and start surveying.
Measurement Data Analysis with Android App
The measured data of the ground penetrating radar is immediately transferred to the Android Tablet PC. The Android software receives the data via WiFi and displays it directly on screen.
The software offers the option of integrating a GPS signal or Google Maps, filtering automatically and entering notes for later recollection of specific scan details. Additionally, the automatic filtering option improves the results of your scan and assists in finding hidden objects and structures more easily. Due to the integrated GPS all scan positions can be stored along with the scan data.
GPR Scan Analysis in Visualizer 3D Studio
The new render views in OKM's 3D software Visualizer 3D Studio allow visualizing detected structures for more detailed analyses.
As soon as you open a GPR measurement, the Main Toolbar will include a further button. Here you can switch between the 2D and 3D render view.
Improve the scan image e.g. by selecting one of the newly added OKM GPR Soil Types (Right Sidebar) and configuring the Visualization (Right Sidebar), e.g. select Smoothing.
In the Visualization menu (Right Sidebar), you can change the Threshold to regulate the number of hidden/visible scan values and corresponding colors for the Volumetric render view.
This will help you focus on the most significant targets in your scan image.
