Radar GSSI SIR 4000 GPR Controller


The SIR® 4000 is GSSI’s first high-performance GPR data acquisition system designed to operate with analog and digital antennas. This evolutionary step allows true versatility and flexibility by supporting a wide range of users, beginner to advanced, in numerous applications.

The SIR 4000 incorporates advanced display modes and filtering capabilities for ‘in-the-field’ processing and imaging. Fully integrated, the system provides a simple user interface, plug-and-play GPS integration, and WiFi enabled data transfer capabilities.

Ideal for multiple applications; utility designation, concrete inspection, mining and geology, environmental assessment, archaeology and forensics.
