ORFEUS addresses the requirement for advanced technologies for locating, maintaining and rehabilitating buried infrastructures and, on particular, it fulfils the requirement for locating buried assets.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is the only known non-invasive technique that can detect metallic and non-metallic buried objects. However, conventional pulse time-domain technology has reached the limit of its development potential, so ORFEUS used innovative techniques to provide a clear advance in the state of the art.
