Layer Thickness Radar

Ground Penetrating Radar for Road Construction

With the Ilmsens ultra-wideband layer thickness radar we can measure the layer thickness of asphalt in real time – before and during the paving process or afterwards for controlling purposes. It can be utilized to monitor the thickness of the layer during paving for adjusting of the material quantity and for documentation or to review the layer thickness after pavement. In comparison to state of the art techniques like drill core extractions, the Ilmsens Layer Thickness Radar is non destructive and can give continuous information of the subsurface - not only samples. That is why ground penetrating radars in general are a perfect fit for such measurement tasks.
