Digital & portable contactless ice penetration radar (IPR) that allows you to quickly and safely survey the thickness of any ice sheet.
Handheld portable IPR device for contact and contactless measurements
Device mountable on vehicles like quadcopter drones or airboats
Device mountable on a fixed-wing drone for contactless surveying of remote areas
How EDI-ICE works?
The principle of operation is based on short-time radio pulse transmission in the environment.
As radio pulses move into the environment, they are reflected from different layers of the surface with different electrical and magnetic properties, in the case of ice thickness measurement devices: air-snow, snow-ice, and ice-water.
Part of the electromagnetic pulse energy is reflected, but part of it propagates further, thereby enabling the measurement of multiple layer parameters. The receiver captures reflected pulses and transforms them into a digital signal. The received signal is analyzed by a data-processing block which, using implemented algorithms calculates snow and ice thickness.
Displays a single ice thickness measurement on a graphical LCD screen
Determining the time and location of the measurement using GPS data
Sending measurement data (ice thickness, coordinates, time) to a remote ThingsBoard ™ server (https://thingsboard.io/) or another (subject to agreement with the customer)
Display of measurement result on google / openstreet maps (optional)
Configuring device settings (storage server address, etc.) via SMS (SMS)
Low battery indication
Indication of measurement quality (reliability) assessment
Adjustable telescopic handle for adjusting the height of the sensor part
