The Riegl VQ-780i waveform processing airborne laser scanner is a high-performance, rugged, lightweight and compact airborne mapping sensor designed for ultra-wide-area mapping and high productivity.

The versatile system is designed for highly efficient data acquisition at low, mid and high altitudes, covering a variety of different airborne laser scanning applications from high-density to ultra-wide-area mapping.

The system provides clutter-free point clouds with high accuracy, excellent vertical target resolution, calibrated reflectance readings and pulse shape deviation for unsurpassed information content on each single measurement.

The Riegl VQ-1560i-DW dual wavelength waveform processing airborne lidar scanning system is for high-point-density mapping applications. The new airborne lidar scanning system offers two lidar channels of different wavelengths: green and infrared (IR).

The two wavelengths allow the acquisition of scan data of complementary information content, delivering two independent reflectance distribution maps and enhanced target characterization, one per laser wavelength.

The VQ-880-GH topo-hydrographic airborne laser scanning system has online waveform processing and full waveform recording. It is a fully integrated airborne laser scanning system for combined hydrographic and topographic surveying with an form factor with reduced height optimized for helicopter integrations.

The system is offered with an integrated and factory-calibrated high-end GNSS/IMU system and up to two cameras. The design allows flexible application of these components to meet specific requirements.
