Product Name:RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV
Description:The new RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV is an extremely lightweight miniaturized airborne laser scanner, designed specifically for integration with the newly emerging survey platforms within UAS/UAV/RPAS. The small and sophisticated design of the stable aluminium housing enables integration with systems that have restricted space or payload weight. The 360° field of view allows complete acquisition of the environment. An easy to remove SD storage card for data acquisition, and/or the option for streaming the scan data via LAN-TCP/IP interface, in combination with the modest power consumption of the scanner, enables simple integration possibilities with most UAS/UAV/RPAS systems. The RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV makes use of RIEGL’s unique Waveform-LIDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage. Additionaly the wavelength is optimized for the meaurement of snowy and icy terrain.
