The RASCAN-4 holographic subsurface
radar is intended for sounding structural components of buildings (brickwork, wall panels, cast in place concrete and reinforced concrete, etc.).
It gives possibility to find buried objects (wiring, reinforcement, voids, various kinds of discontinuities and foreign bodies such as eavesdropping devices).
Computer’s display reflects the internal structure of examination area.
The device operates at five frequencies and two types of polarization (cross and parallel) resulting in almost 100% detection probability.
Another application is non-destructive testing of dielectric composite structures that are used mainly in aerospace industry and shipbuilding.
Nowadays RASCAN-4 holographic radars have no analog in Russia and abroad because of its design and principle of operation.
The Laboratory’s staff was rewarded with Russian Federation government’s prize in the field of science and technology for the creation of the RASCAN radar technology.
