NOGGIN® - Adaptable, high-performance GPR

Overview

NOGGIN® GPR systems have been recognized by leading researchers as providing the highest quality GPR data in the world. They are also built to perform in the most demanding conditions around the globe.

Adaptable, proven GPR for any application

Available in four center frequencies and four standard configurations, NOGGIN® systems can collect data in any environment for any application. NOGGIN® span the depths and resolutions required for subsurface investigations. Choose the combination of center frequency and configuration best suited to your application and terrain.

Features

Powerful yet simple data collection
Adjust data collection parameters and easily view data in the field with the high resolution, sunlight visible, touchscreen digital video logger (DVL).

Rugged by design
Noggins are used in a wide range of environments, temperatures, and weather conditions.
Ultra-wide band (UWB) GPR antennas 
Ground-coupled for maximum signal penetration and data quality.
Digital Video Logger 
High resolution, sunlight visible, resistive touch screen with Wi-Fi and USB data transfer.
Flexible data collection 
Change GPR parameters to optimize the survey. Adjust depth, step size, stacking, time window, grid size, triggering and more.

 

 

 

Wi-Fi mini-reports
Email a report of line, depth slice or map view data to your customers or colleagues.

Depth slicing
Collect grids of data and view depth slices right in the field.
Map view
Using external GPS, display a plan map view of survey path, grids, field interpretations and flags.
Field interpretations
Add color-coded interpretations and field flags with the touch of a finger.

 

Optional GPS
Integrate GPS d GPS for post-processing and export to Google Earth™, CAD drawings & GIS databases.

Multi-language
English, French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Farsi, Russian, Arabic.

The data collection software on the DVL 500 Noggins have default settings to get to work quickly; for line surveys just set the desired depth and start collecting.
For grid collection, the GPR operator sets the grid size and line spacing. The screen prompts the user to collect each line until the grid is complete. It is easy to work around obstructions, skip lines or recollect lines if required.
Once the grid is finished (or any time after at least 3 lines have been collected), the grid data can be processed into depth slices (right in the field!).

For users involved in unusual projects, Noggins also have custom settings to collect data with extreme values:

• Depths to 200 meters (320 m in ice)
• Triggering options include Odometer, Button and Free-Run modes
• Free Run in Time or Free-Run with Speed to collect data on water, snow or ice
• Grids up to 250 x 250m in size
• Zig-zag grid collection pattern
• Step Sizes from 5 millimeters to 5 meters

Create impressive deliverables easily with EKKO_Project™ software.

After data collection is finished, transfer the data to your computer and organize, edit, process and plot your GPR data with EKKO_Project™. See your data in seconds – spend your time understanding the data, not importing and integrating ancillary information.
EKKO_Project™’s reporting capability outputs interpretations and other information into PDF, spreadsheet (csv), Google Earth™ (kmz) and CAD (dxf) files.

Accessories

DVL 500 The Digital Video Logger (DVL) with embedded software provides user control, data saving and real-time display of the Noggin GPR data.rnKey features are:rnrnBright, high contrast, sunlight visible touchscreenrnWi-Fi enabledrnUSB data transferrnBuilt-in GPSrnSerial port for external GPS integrationrnrn
Deluxe DVL 500 Carrying Harness This carry harness brings a new level of flexibility to Noggin® surveys. The comfortable, hands-free operation of the DVL simplifies data collection in the SmartTow™ and SmartHandle™ configurations.rnIt weighs only 2.9lbs (1.3 kg) and is a hybrid design of nylon webbing, high-density polymer, and lightweight steel.rnrnCompact and lightweight for easy transportation to the job siternAngle adjustment – increase productivity by keeping the screen visible at all times.rnWide straps – comfortable for long hours in the fieldrnQuick release straps – easy to put on and adjust for any body typernAdjusts easily to fit overtop of outerwear
Deluxe DVL 500 Carrying Case This Pelican case provides the DVL 500 with the ultimate protection from hazards on the job site. High-density foam lines the interior of the case to guard against damage from shock or impact.
Large Wheel Odometer The large wheel odometer is typically used on rough terrains. It is easily integrated into custom configurations for unique environments or research. The durable optical encoder is fully enclosed allowing it to operate in adverse conditions.
Small Wheel Odometer The small wheel odometer is typically used on smooth surfaces like concrete floors. The compact size of this accessory allows it to be integrated into custom deployments of Noggin systems.rnrn2, 3, 5, 7, 10 & 30 m Cablesrn
SmartCart Battery 9Ah, 3.6 kg, (7.9 lb), 12V gel cell battery
Belt Battery The belt battery power supply case is a tough fabric belt and pack which holds a 12V 7.2 Ah lead acid gel cell battery. This rechargeable battery is a lightweight power source for Noggin systems. Power connection uses a standard XLR connector.

GPS The standard GPS supplied with Noggin is a TopCon model SG-1GPS. Noggin systems are designed to allow any GPS receiver that outputs NMEA strings across a 9-pin serial cable to connect to the DVL. Various GPS models can be used depending on the accuracy required by your application.rnThe SmartCart has an optional GPS mount to deploy the GPS receiver right above the Noggin sensor.
Swivel Mounting Posts These posts are used to attach a Noggin to the SmartCart. This item comes complete with 2 hex keys.
Skid Plates Noggin skid plates protect the bottom of the system from abrasion but are also curved to protect the front and back of the system from rocks, sticks and other objects encountered while surveying. The kit comes with instructions and screws for installation.rnrnThe skid plates are for Noggin 100, 250, 500 and 1000.
