Step Frequency Ground Penetrating Radar Characterization and Federal Evaluation Tests
SF GPR coordination with the NTIA is anticipated to be accomplished by registering entities that own SF GPR systems. The registration process will be used to define the entity responsible for the system, to provide a list of qualified system users, and to provide detailed technical specifications for each registered system. After registration, system users will receive a letter from NTIA defining coordination procedures that they are required to follow. If system users are operating an SF GPR in a location that is on airport facility grounds controlled by FAA, they must notify NTIA via a coordination form. The notification for SF GPR work on airport facility grounds should take place at least 3 days prior to SF GPR operation. If the operation of an SF GPR occurs off airport facility grounds, a valid NTIA registration for the system is required, but no notification is necessary to operate the system.
