US Radar Launches Production Of Q5C Radar System

US Radar Inc. has begun production of its Q5C ground-penetrating radar system that delivers US Radar’s signature SmartGain digital clarity at a list price that’s just a little over half the cost of most competitive units.

“The US Radar Q5C unit is going to give contractors and municipalities that never considered buying their own radar unit the chance to put ground-penetrating radar to work in their public works, environmental and utility locating efforts,” said Ron LaBarca, president, US Radar Inc.

The US Radar Q5C model incorporates SmartStack, a unique algorithm that takes advantage of spare processing power to improve image quality and increase depth of penetration, especially in soils that tend to dissipate electrical energy. StreetSmart onboard processing, also standard, eliminates the need for post-processing of information so the operator can see and evaluate data in real time rather than go back to the office.

“The cost of entry for the Q5C makes it worthwhile for anyone who’s been thinking about locating to give it a try. Yet, this workhorse delivers the most powerful GPR on the market for locating utilities up to 15 feet deep,” LaBarca said.

The basic Q5C operates at a frequency range of 300 to 1,300 MHz. It comes standard with a 1.9 GHz multi-core Intel Atom processor and 10.4-inch daylight-readable LED color display. A single battery powers the unit. A two-year warranty on parts and labor is standard, along with complimentary telephone and email technical support.

Although the Q5C model can be used for most GPR applications, the primary applications will be utility locating, infrastructure and natural gas. 732.566.2035,
