The RIEGL VUX-1UAV²² is a Very Lightweight and Compact Laser Scanner


The RIEGL VUX-1UAV²² is a very lightweight and compact laser scanner, meeting the challenges of emerging survey solutions by UAS/UAV/RPAS, both in measurement performance as in system integration. With regard to the specific restrictions and flight characteristics of UAS, the RIEGL VUX-1UAV is designed to be mounted in any orientation and even under limited weight and space conditions. Modest in power consumption, the instrument requires only a single power supply. The entire data set of an acquisition campaign is stored onto an internal 1 TByte SSD and/or provided as real-time line scan data via the integrated LAN-TCP/IP interface.
