We’re very excited to welcome Virgin Galactic & The Spaceship Company as our newest clients. We recently worked at their Mojave rocket test facility located at the Mojave Air & Spaceport. Our technician was tasked with the duty of locating and mapping all of the rebar within 2 concrete pads. These pads will be used in the near future to test the rocket motors which will be utilized on Spaceship Two.

Our technician used Ground Penetrating Radar, (G.P.R.), to locate each piece of rebar within the concrete pad. He was also asked by our client to determine the depth of each piece of rebar and the concrete thickness. This was an standard task to accomplish and one well suited for our radar system.
