The flexible GPR solution

MALÅ GX is an integrated GPR solution with a wide range of antenna options and measuring devices. Through unique HDR technology, MALÅ GX offers significantly faster data acquisition rates, with outstanding signal-to-noise ratio and depth penetration. An easy-to-use GPR solution on a rugged platform with excellent detection capabilities for a wide range of applications.

Application Areas


Utility locating

The ground beneath our feet in urban areas inevitably gets more and more congested over time with infrastructure comprising both underground structures and utilities. This, together with increasing urbanization and regeneration, aging infrastructure, climate change and flooding, are fueling a need for utility locating and better understanding of the subsurface.


Archaeology, sometimes spelled archeology, is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture. Archaeology is often considered a branch of socio-cultural anthropology, but archaeologists also draw from biological, geological, and environmental systems through their study of the past.

Layer mapping

Geologic mapping is a highly interpretive, scientific process that can produce a range of map products for many different uses, including assessing ground-water quality and contamination risks; predicting earthquake, volcano, and landslide hazards; characterizing energy and mineral resources and their extraction costs.


Outstanding data quality with exceptional performance

MALÅ GroundExplorer (GX) is based on innovative, patent-pending MALÅ High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology and represents a leap forward in Ground Penetrating Radar.

The MALÅ HDR technology reduces random noise; providing deep penetration and significantly faster data acquisition rates, whilst maintaining an unparalleled level of data quality. Built around a fast 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor and using a high-resolution display to present the 32-bit data, the MALÅ GX Controller delivers excellent performance and outdoor visibility.

Facilitating field measurements

MALÅ GX antennas feature an integrated DGPS for accurate positioning and the solution supports the use of external GPS. MALÅ GX solutions support a wide range of distance measuring devices.

The WiFi option enables wireless data collection, making it even easier to use in confined spaces as well as irregular landscapes. Normal working range varies between 25-100 meters depending on the surroundings.

GPR antennas with 4 different frequencies

MALÅ GX is an integrated GPR solution with four MALÅ GX antenna options: GX80, GX160, GX450 and GX750.

MALÅ GroundExplorer (GX) can be optimized for specific measurements by adding different antennas. For this solution there are four different antennas to choose from with frequency options 80, 160, 450 or 750MHz. The choice of antenna frequency will be governed by your application and the desired depth penetration and resolution.



Options and configuration

Optimize the system for specific projects by choosing from a wide range of GPR-antennas, monitor solutions and measuring devices.

Every MALÅ GX solution contains two separate components: the GX Controller and the GX antenna. These are connected either through a single cable or WiFi. MALÅ GX is typically configured as either a push- or pull system. To configure a push-system, the MALÅ GX Controller and a MALÅ GX antenna are mounted on a Rough Terrain Cart. To configure a pull-system, an encoder wheel is fitted to the mounting block on the back of the antenna. The GX Controller is then carried with the monitor holder and the antenna assembly can be pulled with a pulling handle or a strap.


Pick the robust controller for optimal durability, or opt for a lighter solution with the tablet based Controller App.


The MALÅ GX flexible GPR antenna options are; GX80, GX160, GX450, and GX750, all based on the latest HDR technology.


Choose the sled for a pull-optimized system, or select a rough terrain cart for a push-optimized system.
