RIEGL’s NEWEST Unmanned 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 newest developments in our unmanned segment.



The first unmanned hardware development unveiled at INTERGEO 2017 is the NEW RIEGL miniVUX-1DL “Downward-Looking” LiDAR sensor for unmanned laser scanning.

The RIEGL miniVUX-1DL is a sister device to the miniature UAV laser scanner, the RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV. The added indicator “DL” means “downward looking” and refers to its special design tailored to meet the needs of corridor mapping tasks (downward looking, optimized field of view, small size).



The NEW RIEGL RiCOPTER-M is a remotely piloted multi-purpose aircraft system with exceptional payload capacity for professional UAV missions in highly sensitive areas and situations of limited access. This multi-purpose type of the RiCOPTER octocopter has an increased 30 kg MTOM (Maximum Take-Off Mass) and a payload capability of up to 10 kg.

The NEW RIEGL VUX-1UAV and miniVUX-1UAV with APX20 are new versions of the popular VUX-1UAV and miniVUX-1UAV LiDAR sensors, integrated with the new APX20 IMU/GNSS system by Applanix.

The NEW RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV Integration Kit has been released for selected multi-rotor UAV types such as the DJI M600.
