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 3D Terrestrial Laser Scanners VZ-400i and VZ-2000i offer excellent ranging performance and highest accuracy. They 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, the RIEGL VMX-2HA BC “Basic Configuration“ comes as a version of the well-proven Dual Scanner Mobile Mapping System VMX-2HA, but reduced in weight and size, yet focusing on high-end scanning performance. It delivers utmost scanning performance without compromises and can be complemented with an optional spherical imaging system such as FLIR Ladybug® 5+ camera.
In airborne scanning, RIEGL has further 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-780 II laser scanner and the VQ-1560 II scanning system for high flight altitudes in high-point density and ultra-wide area mapping done by fixed-wing manned aircraft.
In unmanned scanning, RIEGL added the miniVUX-2UAV LiDAR sensor to the versatile portfolio of professional solutions for UAV-based surveying. The sister type of the proven RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV sensor offers 100 kHz and 200 kHz laser PRR. With the 200 kHz PRR, the sensor provides up to 200,000 measurements per second and thus a dense point pattern on the ground for UAV-based applications that require the acquisition of small objects.
