GSSI adds drill hole feature to StructureScan Mini XT all-in-one GPR concrete inspection system

GSSI has added a new drill hole feature to the StructureScan Mini XT – the newest generation of GSSI's all-in-one concrete inspection GPR system. The drill hole feature is a 3D data processing detection algorithm. The algorithm evaluates a user-chosen cylindrical area that represents a potential or planned coring location. Scanning for all potential targets within the cylindrical area, the drill hole feature looks for targets that may interfere with a proposed coring location. 

Available only within the StructureScan Mini XT user interface, the drill hole indicator is designed for concrete coring applications. In complicated slab situations, the drill hole feature can help users determine the safest location for coring concrete. However, this  feature is not a substitute for careful analysis by a trained operator, and GSSI does not recommend that the user depend solely on this algorithm for drill hole interpretation. 

Operators should receive special training prior to using this new aid. During training, customers can select areas that they believe are safe for coring while the feature is turned off, and turn the feature on to double check and confirm the initial mark outs. 

The new drill hole feature will work with all StructureScan Mini XT's already in the field, and only requires a software update of the system. New units will come with this user interface pre-installed.
