The Sensors and Software Pulse EKKO 100 is a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system consisting of a console unit, transmitter and receiver packs plus interchangable unshielded antennas.

Ground penetrating radar (GPR) has recently become the must-do geophysical survey technique because of its ease of use and unparalleled ability to image the near sub-surface in detail. In archaeology it is used to locate burial grounds and determine buried structures (most famously, the Tomb of Christ beneath the Church of the Holy Sepulchre). In geology it is used to map sedimentary structures (e.g. ancient lake beds, braided river channels). In geography it is used to characterize sand dunes, glacial moraines and glacial ice stratigraphy. In civil engineering it is used for site investigation, to determine soil properties, log deterioration in structures (such as bridges) and locate utilities, buried pipes and cables. In environmental science it is used to locate buried waste drums, groundwater, contaminant leaks or plumes.
