VUX-180-24

UAV LiDAR Sensor for High-Speed Corridor Mapping

The new RIEGL VUX-180-24 is a lightweight and versatile airborne laser scanner offering a wide field of view of 75 degrees and an extremely high pulse repetition rate of up to 2.4 MHz. These features – in combination with an increased scan speed of up to 800 lines/second – make the RIEGL VUX-180-24 perfectly suited for high speed surveying missions and applications where an optimal line and point distribution is required.

Description

The new RIEGL VUX-18024 is a lightweight and versatile airborne laser scanner offering a wide field of view of 75 degrees and an extremely high pulse repetition rate of up to 2.4 MHz. These features – in combination with an increased scan speed of up to 800 lines/second – make the RIEGL VUX-18024 perfectly suited for high speed surveying missions and applications where an optimal line and point distribution is required.

The RIEGL VUX-18024 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.

For smooth and straight forward data storage, the scanner provides an internal data storage capacity of 2 TByte and a removeable CFast® card. Interfaces for the integration of an appropriate external IMU/GNSS system and up to five optional external cameras are available.

The sophisticated design of the RIEGL VUX-18024 – already proven in the RIEGL VUX-120, VUX-160, and VUX-240 series – enables smooth integration with fast-flying UAS/UAV/RPAS, small manned aeroplanes and helicopters. It is offered both, as stand-alone UAV LiDAR sensor and also in various fully-integrated UAV-based laser scanning system configurations with appropriate IMU/GNSS system and optional cameras. This allows the scanner to perfectly meet all the specific requirements of the customers' applications.
