RIS Hi -Pave


RIS Hi-Pave, is a ground penetrating radar solution for high speed complete Road & Runway Assessment Survey, operating with a single or several antennas at the same time. Provides complete assessment of road conditions, such as:

  • Pavement thickness measurement
  • Surface, base and sub-base road course assessment
  • Detection of cavities, voids and delamination
  • Location of cracks
  • Detection of wet areas
  • Airport runway condition assessment.


Used with GRED 3D an advanced processing software designed for easy and efficient 3D interpretation of data. It allows easy and fast interpretation of a road & runways structure, different road layers, core samples and underground anomalies. The GPR data can be saved together with a GPS file to match a radar scan with absolute coordinates. The GPS positions can be easily loaded onto software such us Google Earth

Processing Software GRED 3D includes:
• 3D view (B-scan and C-scan)
• Layers analysis and view
• Manual or automatic layer tracking
• Core insertion
• GPS positioning from any NMEA CGA output
• CAM View
• Automatic and Manual data processing
• Iso-surface map

  • Horn Antennas: Hi-Pave is equipped with air launched horn antennas that can be used without contact with the surface. As a result the operator is able to achieve high speeds without damaging the antenna.

  • Speed: Hi-Pave is the fastest ground penetrating radar for road evaluation. It can reach up to 260 Km/h with a single antenna configuration and 10 cm data sampling or 130 km/h with a dual antenna configuration and 10 cm data sampling. This is 3 times more than the nearest competitor.

  • Semi-automatic procedure for layer recognition: The post processing software uses a semi-automatic procedure to collect information of road subsurface layers.

  • Modular: Hi-Pave can operate with up to 8 antennas in a chain connection using the same control unit. This can also include lower frequency antennas (typical 600 MHz) for grade and subgrade evaluations.


GRED is an advanced processing software specifically designed for the easy and efficient 3D interpretation of IDS GPR data. It includes special tools which allows an easy and fast interpretation of a road’s structure, such as

  • automatic or manual layers insertion
  • core sample insertion for data calibration and thickness confirmation
  • 2D and 3D tomography for an immediate visualization of buried objects (e.g.: buried pipes and utilities, cavities etc.).



GRED’s windows clearly show radar maps, different road layers, core samples and underground anomalies.

The GRED processing software allows simultaneous viewing of different radar maps and enables the sections to scroll automatically. The software can identify the various layers using both automatic and manual procedures, defining the layer thickness which can be verified and confirmed by inserting core samples.

IDS radar data is compatible with the RoadDoctor software supplied by Roadscanners and with GPRSlice.

The GPR data can be saved together with a GPS file to match a radar scan with absolute coordinates. The GPS positions can be easily loaded onto software such as Google Earth.

When is a ground penetrating radar beneficial in locating of underground pipes & cable utilities ?
The task of Locating underground utilities can be bifurcated into two deliverable: 1.Detection of underground utilities 2.Mapping of underground utilities If we take“a”this can be further subdivided into: 1. Detection of metallic cables & pipes, whether energized current carrying utilities or non energized utilities such as signaling cables, metallic pipes etc. 2. Detection of DI pipes, metallic manholes etc. 3. Non metallic HDPE telecom pipes, fiberglass manholes, etc. Underground cable & pipe utility locating requires the use a combination of various equipment’s and techniques which need to be chosen based on desired deliverables and then correctly employed to obtain the desired results. If the answer is “i”, an operator with basic training on usage of the ever dependable CSCOPE DXL2 Cable avoidance tool or CAT33XD Cable avoidance tool, can do the job blindfolded. If the answer is “ii”, an additional metal detector &/or magnetic locator is required. If the answer is “iii”. The use of a ...
