RIEGL Announces World’s First Survey-Grade LiDAR Sensor for UAS

Horn, Austria, Feb. 6, 2014—RIEGL has developed the world’s first survey-grade UAS LiDAR sensor, the VUX-1. As early as February this year, it is already time to show off this innovative sensor: join us at the official launch event ILMF taking place in Denver, USA, February 17 to 19 where the VUX-1 will be presented for the first time at the RIEGL USA's booth #36.

The innovative sensor was designed to meet the challenges of emerging surveying solutions by UAS, gyrocopters, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance and in system integration. The VUX-1 is an ultra lightweight LiDAR sensor with less than 4 kilograms (less than 9 pounds) overall weight, that can easily be mounted onto professional UAS/RPAS. It has a 300 degree field of view and produces the extremely high quality LiDAR data users expect from a RIEGL product. Internal storage offers the ability to collect data for several hours at altitudes/ ranges up to more than 1,000 ft. Scanner applications include, but are not limited to: Agricultural and Forestry, Defense, Wide Area Mapping, Flood Zone Mapping, Glacier and Snowfield Mapping, Topography and Mining, and the Academic Markets.
