RIEGL’s NEWEST Airborne Developments!

Released last week at INTERGEO 2017, RIEGL has launched their newest, innovative Waveform-LiDAR sensors in all of their segments!

This blogpost will focus on all of the new developments in our airborne segment.



The first airborne development launched at INTERGEO 2017 is the NEW RIEGL VQ-780i waveform processing airborne laser scanner for ultra wide area mapping and high productivity!

The RIEGL VQ-780i is a high performance, rugged, lightweight, and compact airborne mapping sensor. This versatile system is designed for high efficient data acquisition at low, mid, and high altitudes, covering a variety of different airborne laser scanning applications from high density to ultra wide area mapping. The system provides clutter-free point clouds with high accuracy, excellent vertical target resolution, calibrated reflectance readings, and pulse shape deviation for unsurpassed information content on each single measurement.



The second airborne development launched at INTERGEO 2017 is the NEW RIEGL VQ-1560i-DW dual wavelength waveform processing airborne LiDAR scanning system for high-point density mapping applications.

The RIEGL VQ-1560i-DW is a new airborne LiDAR scanning system offering two LiDAR channels of different wavelengths: green and infrared (IR). These wavelengths are well chosen to allow the acquisition of scan data of complementary information content, thus delivering two independent reflectance distribution maps and enhanced target characterization, one per laser wavelength.



The third airborne development launched at INTERGEO 2017 is the NEW RIEGL VQ-880-GH topo-hydrographic airborne laser scanning system with online waveform processing and full waveform recording.

The RIEGL VQ-880-GH is a fully integrated airborne laser scanning system for combined hydrographic and topographic surveying with an form factor with reduced height optimized for helicopter integrations. The system is offered with an integrated and factory-calibrated high-end GNSS/IMU system and up to two cameras. The design allows flexible application of these components to meet specific requirements.
