The Waveform Processing Airborne Laser Scanner RIEGL VQ-780 II  provides further increased performance and highest productivity based on a laser pulse repetition rate of up to 2 MHz, resulting in more than 1.33 million measurements/sec on the ground.

Designed for high efficient data acquisition 

The versatile scanner is designed for high efficient data acquisition at low, mid, and high altitudes, covering a variety of different airborne laser scanning applications from high density to wide area mapping. Its high speed rotating mirror design ensures reliability, and uniform point distribution across its entire wide field of view and at all flying altitudes. Based on RIEGL’s proven Waveform-LiDAR technology, the system provides point clouds with highest accuracy, excellent vertical target resolution, calibrated reflectance readings, and pulse shape deviation for unsurpassed information content on each single measurement. Excellent atmospheric clutter suppression yields clean point clouds with minimum efforts in filtering isolated noise points.

The VQ-780 II is designed to work with the latest Inertial Navigation (IMU) Systems, flight management systems, and camera options. The system is complimented with RIEGL‘s advanced acquisition and data processing software suite that utilizes parallel computing (GPU) for fast data processing
