Paper Abstract

This paper presents real time optical positioning technology developed by ENSCO, Inc. and a system-level concept for its application to wall penetration and wall interior imaging. The concept merges this positioning technology, commercial Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) systems, and software imaging techniques. We demonstrate existing real-time optical positioning hardware and present the concept for the next generation. This hardware integrates with a commercial GPR system, triggering it in real time. Software techniques, such as 3D migration, process the data and make them suitable for display and interpretation by inexperienced operators in near real time.
