Lightweight airborne laser scanner

The  VUX-240 is a lightweight airborne laser scanner, especially designed for use on UAS/UAV/RPAS and small manned aeroplanes or helicopters. With its wide field of view of 75 degrees and an extremely fast data acquisition rate of up to 1.8 MHz, the instrument is perfectly suited for high point density corridor mapping applications.

The VUX-240 makes use of RIEGL‘s unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage.

A continuously rotating polygon mirror wheel enables scan speeds of up to 400 lines per second, for efficiently covering large areas when operated from fast UAVs or aircrafts.

The scanner provides an internal data storage capacity of 1 TByte and is equipped with interfaces for an external IMU/GNSS system as well as to control up to four external cameras.
