GSSI, Panasonic Partner to Create Tough Luck for GPR User

GSSI’s technology aids field work across industries, from construction sites to public utility work and even search and rescue missions following a natural disaster. A custom controller hardened for field work had met the unique hardware requirements for their ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology, but could no longer keep up with the design cycle and the hardware too frequently became outdated. 

The search for a new technology partner led GSSI to Panasonic, which has similar reputation for rugged and durable products. GSSI purchased fleet of Toughpad FZ-G1 and Toughpad FZ-M1 tablets, and designed proprietary software for use with their GPR systems, creating a bundled full-suite package that offers customers full control over these complex, finely-tuned radar systems. Lightweight and portable, the tablet doesn’t compromise on performance or screen size and offers portability and offers greater flexibility in the field.

Due to the uniquely challenging environment of GPR work, GSSI needed a device that could withstand the varying conditions of this environment to seal out the elements. GSSI customers are known for being tough on their equipment. Operating in construction and safety zones, these devices might be tossed in the back of a truck, shipped around the world and dropped countless times. GSSI needed to ensure that a tablet-based system could endure how their employees handle the devices as much as the environment they work within.

And because GSSI customers primarily work in outdoors environments, visibility and battery life were other crucial features. Particularly in bright light conditions, commercial grade tablets get washed out and critical data is difficult to read on the screen. The ability to ensure visibility in all light conditions was another important aspect. GSSI was also attracted to the added battery life available with the Toughpad. Especially in emergency response and disaster recovery situations, device failure due to battery loss simply isn’t an option.

By deploying Panasonic’s Toughpad tablet, GSSI now offers customers a highly capable solution in a device that will last, eliminating fears of damage or replacement.
