New UAV solutions from RIEGL give a boost in performance and density

Power line mapping with RIEGL VUX-160²³ system including a AP+30 IMU/GNSS system on RiCOPTER UAV platform

Geo Week News recently published an article featuring an interview with My-Linh Truong, Division Manager | Unmanned Laser Scanning at RIEGL USA that took place during INTERGEO. The main highlight was on the launch of the VUX-120²³ and the VUX-160²³, updated and extended versions of RIEGL‘s UAV LiDAR fleet.

The VUX-160²³ and VUX-120²³, at first glance have a similar size, form factor and shape, with the 160 being slightly larger than its “sister” sensor.” said My-Linh Truong. “Both of the sensors are part of RIEGL’s line of  NFB (Nadir/Forward/Backward) scanning sensors, which means that they alternate from strictly nadir, to 10 degrees forward and -10 degrees backward.
