GET THE FINDAR® ADVANTAGE

LOCATE BURIED EVIDENCE

FINDAR® uses Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) technology to enable law enforcement to quickly and effectively search for evidence buried under the ground.

FINDAR® Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to Augment Forensic Investigations

Find evidence with FINDAR® by complementing commonly used search tools, such as metal detectors, soil probes, cadaver dogs and electromagnetic induction (EMI).

FINDAR® can locate:

  • Clandestine graves
  • Drugs or money buried in metal or plastic containers
  • Buried weapons and ammunition stashes
  • Areas of interest to reduce costly, time-consuming and disruptive excavation.

 

Benefits of FINDAR®

  • The intuitive user interface guides investigators through a systematic grid search
  • Ultra light cart for easy transport to and navigation at the investigation site
  • Easy to use with minimal training
  • Transfer data and captured images to a PC and integrate images into reports.
  • Real time interpretations to identify key areas of interest for immediate excavation on-site

 

We offer a range of Forensics focused GPR Solutions

Evidence can be hidden behind brick or concrete walls, under concrete or wooden floors, or in hidden compartments so GPR with an array of available deployments can easily assist with the requirements of your investigations.

FINDAR® Speaks for Murder Victims

This case study shows how Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) officials surveyed a crime scene with FINDAR® to locate and discover a decomposing body under three feet of soil.

Murder in Sweden

After years of police investigations, it was Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) from Sensors & Software that helped discover the location of a murder victim’s body.

GPR guides exhumation

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) was used to locate two young females who were buried as “Jane Doe’s”. The bodies were subsequently exhumed and returned to their families for proper burial.

FINDAR® Features

Additional Features

Line Mode

Collect cross-sectional lines for reconnaissance purposes. Identify and focus your search on relevant areas

Grid Mode

For detailed survey over areas of interest, collect grids. Easily collect lines around obstacles within the grid.

3D Depth Slicing

After collecting a grid of data, generate depth slice images on-site. Quickly pinpoint the position and depth of potential targets.

Field Interpretations

Classify targets in real time with field interpretations. Use the touchscreen to color-code each target as it is located.

Map View

Using the optional external GPS, Line scans, grids and field interpretations are displayed on the screen in a plan map view.

Screenshots

At any point during the survey, save screen captures of line data, map views and depth slices as graphic images.

Geo-referenced Output

Using the EKKO_Project™ PC software, display your survey lines, depth slices and interpretations in Google Earth™ and other similar geo-referenced platforms.

USB Data Transfer

Project data is saved to a USB memory device for archiving and transfer to a computer.

FINDAR® Reporting & Archiving

EKKO_Project™ PC Software

Data exported from FINDAR® uses the EKKO_Project™ PC software for Data Management, Display, Archiving and Reporting. Each project contains time-stamped data (line and grids) and screen images.

Optional: Utility Suite Software

Enhancing EKKO_Project™ with the Utility Suite software enables more advanced data analysis and reporting, including:

  • Modifying line views and depth slices
  • Exporting depth slices into Google Earth™
  • Add point, polyline, box and annotation interpretations to GPR lines
  • Processing reconnaissance surveys into depth slices

The Utility Suite includes the LineViewSliceView and Interpretation modules.

Optional: 3D Visualization Software

The SliceView module supports 3D volume data exports for use in third-party 3D visualization programs such as Voxler.
