Lightweight scanner for UAV: RIEGL VUX-1

Post by Christian Sevcik »

RIEGL proudly announces a new class of LiDAR sensors: Introducing the world’s first survey-grade LiDAR for UAS!

RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems has been developing 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!

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.

“By introducing the VUX-1, RIEGL is the first to offer a LiDAR sensor that has been especially developed for the UAS and RPAS markets. We expect tremendous growth in these fields and are proud to support these with the breakthrough VUX-1!” said Dr. Johannes Riegl, RIEGL’s Chief Executive Officer.

This VUX-1 will be on display during ILMF 2014 at the RIEGL USA booth, Booth 36. Stop by the booth during the show to see this innovative LiDAR sensor for yourself!
