Ground-Penetrating Radar

Maverick’s Primary Subsurface Technology

Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) is the flagship technology in Maverick’s Subsurface Division. GPR is the science of penetrating the subsurface with radio waves in order to gather information about underground features and facilities. This service is perhaps one of the most precise and demanding remote sensing techniques we use.

Diligent equipment selection, data gathering, software analysis, reporting, and communication of results takes years of experience.

Maverick's Ground-penetrating Radar department carries multiple frequencies, makes, models, and deployment methods.


  • Concrete scans to locate and map out conduits, post-tension cables, rebar, and other features prior to cutting or coring
  • Mapping out structural steel, concrete thickness, and other structural elements for engineering studies
  • Underslab void and saturation mapping
  • Utility locates
  • Archeology & forensics support
  • Cemetery and First Nations burial site mapping
  • Mapping out subsurface features and conditions prior to critical crane lifts
  • Contamination plume mapping when other technologies cannot be deployed effectively
  • Locating of underground storage tanks
  • Gathering data for gravel and placer mining exploration
  • Sub-bottom profiling of lakes, ponds, peat, etc.
  • Ice road thickness studies
  • Asphalt thickness studies

From Edmonton Alberta Maverick deploys multiple subsurface investigation technologies to complement Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR).

From Edmonton Alberta, Maverick has been performing GPR services in Western Canada since 2001, on all types of sites for all industries. We have a wide range of systems, not limited to one manufacturer, frequency, make, model, generation, or deployment platform. Every GPR system has strengths and weaknesses, and experience and training is required to select the right option, or even combine multiple frequencies or deploy complementary technologies.

Maverick's Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) division works with other departments to provide more information.

Maverick’s commitment to safety, quality, and reliability extends beyond training, experience, and data gathering procedures. Our team includes an Electronic Technologist with a decade of experience testing, calibrating, maintaining, and repairing remote sensing geoscientific equipment on a component level.

Data from Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) investigations can be provided to Maverick's clients in a variety of formats.

We maintain the qualifications and requirements to access the most secure and demanding sites and facilities. With Maverick you are not paying for an untested, eager entrepreneur with a new hardhat and a supposedly user-friendly system fresh out of the box. You are purchasing access to a team of expertise dedicated to providing results.

In addition to Ground-penetrating Radar, Maverick deploys subsurface technology such as Magnetometry, EM Profiling, Seismic, Conductivity, Resistivity, and Acoustics.

Ground-penetrating Radar (GPR) can be performed in many locations, requiring specialised vehicles and equipment.

Call or email us. We are always happy to discuss your inspection scenarios. We can come out to your site for a presentation such as a lunch-and-learn or an information session crafted for your facility and challenges. You will always get an actual person when you phone Maverick, and a technician with the specific expertise you require will contact you ASAP to talk to you in person.
