Characterization of subsurface structures is often done by ground penetrating radar (GPR). GPR permits non-intrusive investigation and has applications in archaeology, lunar characterization and underground infrastructure monitoring. Combining a GPR unit with HELIX provides subsurface information in human restricted locations.
The unique ability of HELIX to go where humans can’t makes it an ideal platform for inspection of infrastructures that are difficult to access. Equipped with cameras, HELIX is capable of inspecting miles of pipelines and under bridgeways.
