Hawaii Geophysical Services is a technological leader in the design and innovation of surface and ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems. If you need to see what is on the other side of a surface, our radar systems can safely help you define what you can’t see with the bare eye.    Read More

Key Holing is pipeline maintenance using small hole techniques, where work is done from above ground through a small opening called a keyhole. This can easily triple productivity compared with conventional open pit repair methods, and is far safer as well.

Pot Holing is the practice of digging a test hole to expose underground utilities to ascertain the horizontal and vertical location of the facility. The horizontal and vertical position of the exposed facility must be tied to a survey benchmark or permanent above grade feature.

Utilities Mapping is important because current maps are often wrong - if they exist at all. Sometimes utility pipes or cables are relocated during repairs or renovations, but maps are not updated. Sometimes maps represent proposed plans that don’t show as-built locations. Sometimes, old maps are simply lost or disintegrated.

Air Excavation turns a backbreaking, messy, and dangerous job into a fast, simple, and safe process. Utility professionals rely on air-vacuum excavation for locating underground utilities, and compared to systems that use water, air offers higher performance in most soils, greater efficiency, lower cost, and is less invasive than water.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a geophysical method that uses radar pulses to image the subsurface in a variety of media, including rock, soil, ice, fresh water, pavements and structures. This non-destructive method can detect objects, changes in material, and voids and cracks.

Utility location is the process of identifying underground public utility mains. Because of the many different types of underground lines, different detection and location methods must be used. For metal pipes and cables, we use electromagnetic equipment. For other types of pipe, such as plastic or concrete, we use radiolocation or ground-penetrating radar.
