RIEGL has been producing Lidar systems commercially since 1978, focusing on pulsed time-of-flight laser radar technology in multiple wavelengths. RIEGL’s core ‘smart waveform’ technologies provide pure digital LiDAR signal processing, unique methodologies for resolving range ambiguities, multiple targets per laser shots, optimum measurement distribution, calibrated amplitudes and reflectance estimates, and the seamless integration and calibration of systems.
The broad RIEGL portfolio comprises laser scanners and laser scanning systems for terrestrial, industrial, mobile, bathymetric, airborne and UAV-based applications. Innovative software complements the sophisticated hardware, resulting in powerful solutions for nearly all imaginable fields in surveying.
RIEGL stands for continuing “innovation in 3D”:
In terrestrial scanning, the VZ-2000i offers ranging up to 2,500m. Like the VZ-400i, this system can execute tasks, e.g. registration and georeferencing in the background parallel to high-speed data acquisition. Special RIEGL software packages allow to fully exploit the scanners’ capabilities and offer highest user friendliness.
In mobile scanning, RIEGL presents the new dual scanner mobile mapping system, the VMX-2HA which grants extremely dense point clouds and highly accurate scan data. The system now provides a high-speed 10GigE link for acquisition of scan and image data and offers a flexible combination of up to 9 different cameras including spherical camera FLIR Ladybug 5+.
In airborne scanning, RIEGL has expanded their portfolio now offering laser scanners and fully integrated systems for almost all airborne applications. Starting with the VUX-1LR for applications at low flight altitudes and especially suited for helicopter integration, to the VQ-480 II / VQ-580 II for medium flight altitudes using small manned as well as unmanned aircraft, and to the VQ-1560i for high flight altitudes in high-point density and ultra-wide area mapping done by fixed-wing manned aircraft.
In unmanned scanning, RIEGL aims for continuous growth in their product line. The VUX-Line has been expanded further by the VUX-240, a lightweight airborne laser scanner perfectly designed for using on UAS/UAV/RPAS as well as small manned aircrafts and – due to its 75° FOV and an extremely fast data acquisition rate of up to 1.8 MHz perfectly suited for high point density corridor mapping applications.
