RIEGL Product News 2022

We are very pleased that it was finally possible to come together again without restrictions at INTERGEO 2022 in Essen and to present the brand-new products and innovations from our Ultimate LiDARTM technology to a wide audience. Here we are allowed to give you a short summary of the current product innovations. Details can then be found in the corresponding data sheets on our website.

UAV-based Laser Scanning:
RIEGL VUX-160-23 and RIEGL VUX-120-23
– the High-Performance Solution for UAV-based Applications

News from RIEGL’s range of NFB (Nadir/Forward/Backward)-scanning sensors: With the 23-Series RIEGL’s UAV LiDAR sensor product line has been upgraded and extended again.
The new VUX-160-23 provides up to 2.4 MHz PRR, 400 lines/sec, 10 mm accuracy, 5 mm precision and an extended measurement range of up to 1800 m with only 2.65 kg in weight. It is able to capture up to 32 targets per pulse and thus offers excellent penetration capabilities, e.g., for applications in forestry. This sensor also supports fully integrated IMU/GNSS electronics for convenient system integration und is prepared for the use with up to 5 cameras.
The VUX-120-23 offers a higher PRR up to 2.4 MHz and higher measurement rates in its proven design, further increasing efficiency for tasks with higher point density requirements.
Both sensors are the ideal choice for corridor mapping applications, and are available as stand-alone UAV LiDAR sensor or in various fully-integrated laser scanning system configurations with optional cameras.

Topo-Bathymetric Laser Scanning:
RIEGL VQ-840-GL – the Lightweight Solution for UAV-based Applications

As the companion of the proven high-performance VQ-840-G topo-bathymetric LiDAR scanner, the VQ-840-GL is offered in a new design. Maintaining the proven form factor, internal redesign and the additional use of lightweight structural components enable a weight reduction of 20 % to 9.8 kg (20 lbs). That makes the sensor even more suitable for UAV integration and UAV-based applications of combined topographic and bathymetric surveying in coastline and shallow water mapping as well as river surveying.

We thank you for the lively interest in the RIEGL Ultimate LiDAR product portfolio 2022 and are already looking forward to INTERGEO 2023 in Berlin!
