Riegl launches lightweight airborne lidar for UAVs

Austria: The Riegl miniVUX-2UAV is a lightweight airborne laser scanner designed specifically for integration with unmanned aerial vehicles and systems.

Riegl added the new miniaturized UAV sensor to its portfolio of professional solutions for UAV-based surveying.

The sister type of the miniVUX-1UAV sensor, the miniVUX-2UAV offers 100 kHz and 200 kHz 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.

The Riegl miniVUX-2UAV makes use of Riegl waveform lidar technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating dense foliage, and the wavelength is optimized for the measurement of snowy and icy terrain.

In addition to the stand-alone version of the miniVUX-2UAV, Riegl also offers fully-integrated solutions.
