Abstract

Multihead configurations for Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) and depth GPR systems can be configured in a variety of ways in order to optimise their performance. In this paper multihead GPR systems are examined to establish the best configuration in terms of determining the depth of a target. The analysis examines the errors that may be introduced when a layered subsurface structure, as is commonly found in urban streets, is treated as a single infill. The system relies on being symmetrically positioned over a target, and the methodology used to achieve this is discussed.
