IDS - A World Leader in Multi-frequency, Multi-channel Ground Penetrating systems

IDS has long been a major player in research into GPR. This dates back to 1991 and collaboration with Telecom Italia, the Italian telecommunications organisation, who required data into how to improve the mapping of subsoil utilities. In order to address this, IDS launched the multi-frequency, multi-channel array systems which enable the construction of detailed 3D images of large underground areas, dramatically improving utilities detection. Building on this success IDS has became the largest global provider of GPR products. More on IDS GPR Products.

A pioneer of Interferometric technology applied to Civil Engineering and Earth Environment

2007 saw the launch of the IBIS products, the first commercial Ground-Based interferometric radar with linear scan capabilities. This ground-breaking product range was unique to the field as it was the first use of interferometric technology for dynamic and static monitoring of structures and earth environments. The interferometric radar products provide a unique solution to the problem of monitoring small movements in ground or structures, allowing remote, long range, continuous real-time measurement of large areas.
