Description

Typical operating flight altitudes vary from less than 1,500 ft up to 12,100 ft (@ target reflectance of >20%). Laser pulse repetition rates can be tuned in steps of less than 12 kHz.
In combination with different laser power modes subtle optimization of acquisition parameters is possible in order to meet specific project requirements.
These features make the instrument the most flexible choice for acquisition of scan data with an exceptionally wide range of achievable point densities and utmost data collection efficiency at the same time. The unique forward/backward scan angle of the VQ-1560 II with its large field of view of 58 degrees enables capturing data from multiple angles more effectively and more accurately at high point densities.
The system is equipped with a seamlessly integrated high performance IMU/GNSS unit and e.g. an optional 150 megapixel RGB camera
integrated in the primary camera bay. Optionally, a second camera, e.g. a thermal camera or a 150 megapixels near-infrared camera, can be integrated on request.
The design of the compact housing features a mounting flange for interfacing with typical hatches or gyro-stabilized leveling mounts.
