RIEGL introduces new LiDAR instrument

RIEGL has released one of their newest and innovative airborne scanning systemsThe new RIEGL VQ-1560 II dual-channel waveform processing airborne LiDAR scanning system provides further increased performance, based on a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 4MHZ, resulting in more than 2.66 million measurements per second on the ground.

Offering highly efficient data acquisition at a wide range of point densities, the VQ-1560 II provides mission results with further increased productivity for both high point density mapping and ultra wide-area mapping.

The Dual LiDAR Waveform Processing Airborne Scanning System  VQ-1560 II provides further increased performance and highest productivity based on a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 4 MHz, resulting in more than 2.66 million measurements per second on the ground.

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 are possible in order to meet specific project requirements.

These features make the instrument the most flexible choice for the 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 into 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.
