A very lightweight and compact scanner

The VUX-1LR is a very lightweight and compact laser scanner, meeting the challenges of airborne laser scanning by helicopter, gyrocopter, and other small aircraft both in measurement performance as well as in system integration. With regard to the specific constraints and flight characteristics, the VUX-1LR 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.

High-speed Data Acquistion

The VUX-1LR provides high-speed data acquisition using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast line scanning mechanism. High accuracy laser ranging is based on RIEGL’s unique echo digitization and online waveform processing, which enables achieving superior measurement results even under adverse atmospheric conditions, and the evaluation of multiple target echoes. The scanning mechanism is based on an extremely fast rotating mirror, which provides fully linear, unidirectional and parallel scan lines, resulting in excellent regular point pattern.
