RIEGL RiCAST: LiDAR Bathymetry – Diving Deeper

In this week’s RIEGL RiCAST, Michael Sitar, RIEGL USA’s Division Manager of Airborne Laser Scanning is joined by Dr. Martin Pfennigbauer, Director of Research and Intellectual Property at RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems.

Tune in as they dive even deeper into LiDAR Bathymetry, and provide further information on RIEGL’s latest bathymetric sensors and software for airborne data collected on both manned and unmanned platforms.

Dr. Martin Pfennigbauer holds a PhD in engineering from Vienna University of Technology. He has been with RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems since 2005 and currently serves as the director of research and intellectual property. He manages research projects funded by the European Space Agency, the European Union, and Austrian national funds. He is the product manager for hydrographic airborne laser scanning systems. His special interest is the design and development of LiDAR instruments for surveying applications, with a focus on rangefinder design, waveform processing and point cloud analysis.
