MacLeod Simmonds invests in Stream-EM GPR System

McLeod Simmonds Stream-EM

MacLeod Simmonds, a leading UK based utility mapping company, have doubled their IDS Stream-EM capability with the purchase of the latest version through Drilline Products.

The Stream EM is a vehicle towed multi-channel Ground Penetrating Radar solution dedicated to utility mapping. The system has been designed to enable the user to cover large survey areas, this is achievable because the system is operating with 40 separate channels, enabling the best quality results possible. The solution includes double polarized (VV and HH) antennas, this enables the Stream-EM to travel in a single direction but collect the data for both the longitudinal and transversal pipes detection. The system can obtain data up to a maximum speed of 15 Km/h.

Craig Simmonds, Managing Director at MacLeod Simmonds, first invested in the technology several years ago when he was involved in the development with the Italian manufacturer IDS. The latest version of the system has been successful with users throughout the world and is seen by IDS and Drilline as the future of GPR for utility mapping.
