Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)

The majority of Utility companies use Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment for utility location, tracing and depth. These useful units detect the depth and location of non-metallic services by the antenna receiving an electrical pulse of radar energy that the control unit produces, this is then amplified and transmitted into the ground at a particular frequency, once the scans are downloaded these produce mapping surveys.

This UK’s ageing network of pipes is slowly being replaced by non-conductive (non-metal) pipes – so the GPR equipment is effective – you do not want to risk hitting a gas pipe!

CCTV Surveys

Specially developed camera technology that produces superior quality images, meaning a difficult drain problem can be diagnosed and the structure of the underground drain accurately viewed.

Sewer Sondes drainage

The dual frequency Sonde is useful when it is necessary to trace drains, sewers and other non-conductive utilities. This device can be attached to a range of equipment including drain rods, boring tools and inspection cameras, acting like a transmitter.

Topographical Land Survey with Benchmark Surveys

This process involves accurate site surveying of the land for many clients; Architects, Planners, Designers and Developers – the results are high quality topographical surveys, which are invaluable for the progression and development of future projects

C.A.T & Genny Training

Newscan offer C.A.T & Genny courses including the following modules: RD CAT4 &CAT 4+, Passive modes (Power & radio), Direct Connection (Genny mode), Induction mode (Genny mode), All Made Search and Strike Alert, Depth Mode (Genny mode) & Flexi Trace systems and use of a Sonde (mouse).

Aerial Photography

We can provide aerial photography services which has many advantages including the ability to perform precise, repetitive raster scans of a region using visual or thermal imaging.
