Lightweight and compact laser scanner.

The RIEGL VUX-1UAV meets the challenges of emerging survey solutions by UAS/UAV/RPAS, gyrocopter, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance as in system integration. With regard to the specific restrictions and flight characteristics of UAS, the RIEGLVUX-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 240 GByte SSD and/or provided as real-time line scan data via the integrated LAN-TCP/IP interface.

Main Features

  • 10 mm survey-grade accuracy
