EnTech provides subsurface diagnostics that offer a dynamic view of underground archeological infrastructure. Stacking our technologies creates a comprehensive system that supplies our clients with timely and accurate information enabling them to make informed decisions.
Archeological investigation begins with an Infrared Energy Pattern Analysis (IR-EPA) investigation of the suspected anomalous areas. Our IR-EPA systems detect specific energy patterns that can be used for excavation mapping or cemetery mapping.
The IR-EPA investigation can be complimented with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) for large aerial surveys. Sub-meter GPS accuracy ensures that field crews can easily locate sites. We can investigate large areas using this method in a short period of time (collecting 100 linear miles of data a day) and cut costs because we can target the areas that need to be further investigated.
Each investigation can be explored further utilizing Second Generation Ground Penetrating Microwave Radar (GPR). GPR provides 3-D views of specific areas that require more detail than IR-EPA can offer.

An expansion program was underway at a large Mid West refinery and several 100+ year old roads were to be used to transport large equipment (weighing over 500 tons) to complete the project. EnTech was hired to check for voids and anomalies beneath the roadway to help assure safety throughout the process.
EnTech engineers used EnSITE IV technology to investigate the roadways, incorporating Infrared Energy Pattern Analysis(IR-EPA) and Second Generation Ground Penetrating Microwave Radar (GPR) to identify the location of underground voids. Our patented, stacked technologies allowed us to provide a precise detailed analysis of 15 anomalous locations.
THE PERSONALIZED SOLUTION
Our client performed exploratory excavation of the identified anomalies. At each identified location, various underground pipes, lumber and or structures were found. The structures were either removed or it was determined by visual inspection that it was safe to do fill over.
