Cost
Estimates
of VOTERS
Components

UVM
-
GPR


cost of prototype $55,000 hardware


cost of duplication in low quantities $50,000 hardware


estimated cost for medium and high quantity commercial version

maybe under $10,000


ESS
-
GPR



Estimated cost in low quantities for prototype versions of the ESS Gen3 GPR radar
system for GEARS is $3500. This includes the electronics, housing, and acquisition
software, but does not include antennas.


Multiply
this number time the number of antenna pairs needed for the GEARS
array system
. For example, a system with 16 antenna pairs would cost
about $56k,

a third of currently available slower commercial GPR arrays
