VQ-580 Airborne Laser Scanner
Dec 2010
Riegl USA Inc.Request Info
ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 17, 2010 — Riegl Laser Measurement Systems GmbH has announced an addition to its V-line airborne laser fleet of instruments, the VQ-580. It provides high-speed, noncontact data acquisition using a narrow near-infrared laser beam and a fast line scanning mechanism, and it is designed to measure on snow and ice.

High-accuracy laser ranging is based on proprietary echo digitization and online waveform processing, which enable precise measurement results, even under adverse atmospheric conditions, and the evaluation of multiple target echoes. Applications include glacier and snowfield mapping, and agriculture and forestry mapping, topography and mining, lakeside and riverbank mapping, corridor mapping, city modeling and mapping of power lines.

The scanning mechanism is based on a fast rotating multifacet polygonal mirror that provides fully linear, unidirectional and parallel scan lines.

Mountable in any orientation, even under limited space conditions on helicopters or unmanned aerial vehicles, the compact and lightweight instrument needs only one power supply and provides line-scan data via the integrated LAN-TCP/IP interface. The binary data stream can easily be decoded by user-designed software making use of the available software library RiVLib.
