Detector Duo 
Detector Duo is a portable radar solution for locating buried utilities and other underground features. To accomplish this task it uses a dual frequency antenna which provides an increased resolution at the same time as a better penetration depth, allowing a more accurate interpretation of the data. The compact, easy to transport and deploy radar and its high performance acquisition software allows contractors, local authorities and utility service providers to locate the exact position of pipes, cables and bedrock and helps prevent damage during trenching and drilling operations.
Detector Duo Benefits 
• Easy to interpret real-time results make locating the exact position of pipes and cables simple.
• Two antennas combine superior resolution with extra soil penetration depth.
• GPS support to help keep track of the survey path, buried objects and utilities
Detector Duo Features
• Deep and shallow antennas: Two antennas (250 MHz – 700MHz) in the same box help the operator to locate pipes and cables giving him the proper frequency for  the specific locating need. Real time display of deep and shallow antennas on the same screen is also available.
• More than 8 hours of autonomous use: The Detector Duo is equipped with a low power consuming control unit.
• Easy to use: Plug and play, few buttons, easy software interface. Automatic calibration for quick start up; automatic recovery of soil type parameters; no need to insert propagation speed or soil dielectric constants.
• GPS: With GPS the operator can see the path covered during the survey and can add geo-located marks within the software to indicate pipes and targets.
Detector Duo Configuration
Detector Duo is composed of a dual frequency antenna unit contained in a replaceable protective skid and mounted on a rugged trolley for easy use and maneuverability. The trolley is lightweight and collapsible for easy portability. Included in the trolley unit is a DAD FastWave radar control unit and a data logger PC with a sunlight readable monitor for easy use outdoors.
