RIEGL is an international leading provider of cutting edge Waveform-LiDAR technology in airborne, mobile, terrestrial, and unmanned laser scanning solutions. RIEGL’s innovative hard- and software products provide powerful solutions for multiple applications in surveying.
For combined hydrographic and topographic surveying RIEGL offers the fully integrated airborne laser scanning systems VQ-880-G II and VQ-880-GH – the new, further improved successors of the proven VQ-880-G. Providing a water penetration of 1.5 Secchi depth, they are ideally suited for coastline and shallow water mapping, river bed profiling, measurement of aggradation zones, hydro-archaeological surveying, etc.
These turnkey surveying systems include a high-end IMU/GNSS unit and an RGB camera and are fully calibrated off-factory. The integrated improved infrared laser scanner complements the data from the green laser scanner and supports the detection of the water surface. The compact and robust housing is compliant with typical aircraft hatches and stabilized platforms. Additionally, the VQ-880-GH’s form factor with reduced height is specifically optimized for helicopter integration.
Additionally RIEGL announces the new topo-hydrograhpic laser scanner RIEGL VQ-840-G, a compact and lightweight LiDAR system to be installed on various platforms including UAVs.
The BathyCopter, world’s first small-UAV-based surveying system for bathymetric surveying completes RIEGL’s topo-hydrographic portfolio. It is capable of measuring through the water surface and it is ideally suited for generating profiles of rivers or water reservoirs. The robust and reliable platform design integrates the RIEGL BDF-1 bathymetric depth finder - with tilt compensator, IMU/GNSS unit, control unit, and up to two digital cameras - on RIEGL’s RiCOPTER.
