Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a widely used technology in many kinds of geological survey. It’s a geological method that uses radar pulse to image the surface. It is a non- intrusive method of surveying the subsurface to investigate underground utilities such as concrete, asphalt, metals, pipes, cable etc. To add onto these properties of GPR, here a drone and several sensors, which will make GPR surveys more efficient and accurate. The GPR is mounted over a drone (DJIM600 Pro) which will give more precision in work and exploring difficult areas. A GPR mounted on a drone enables to see the underground surface of ground without compromising safety and providing more efficient surveying. Also, it can be used for surveying in unreachable areas and make our job easier. In order to increase the application level of GPR drone integrated system several sensors such as pressure, thermal, humidity, snowfall, rain, gas, infrared sensors are also mounted. In short, GPR drone integrated system with sensors is the easiest and safe solution for geological surveys, archaeological surveys, weather forecasting etc. Keywords: GPR; geology, drone.
