With more than 30 years of experience producing laser scanners, laser rangefinders and more, Riegl USA has seen recent success with a number of products, including its new VQ-820-G hydrographic airborne laser scanning system. What else is the company working on, and what can attendees expect to find at the 2013 Riegl International User Conference? Marketing Manager Susan Licari gave details to GeoDataPoint's Alexis Brumm at the Esri International User Conference.
What type of scanners do Airborne laser scanning systems use? How do they work and why? This presentation covers the basics of Airborne Laser Scanning and some important things to consider if looking at this technology. If you would like more information on this technology or you are looking for a system yourself? Please get in touch - www.3dlasermapping.com / email@example.com
Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 Riegl Hydrographic Airborne Scanner Schiebel and Riegl Laser Measurement Systems GmbH are proud to announce the successful integration of the SCHIEBEL CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS) together with the Riegl VQ®-820-GU Hydrographic Airborne Sensor. This successful integration marked the first time that this new airborne sensor was flown on board of a UAV. The SCHIEBEL CAMCOPTER® S-100 helicopter UAS carried a special Schiebel-made composite pod containing the sensor, the IMU-GNSS unit, the data recording and transfer unit as well as a digital camera, during the flight tests in Grossmittel, Austria, which were carried out this month. This fully integrated system thus enables acquisition of high-accuracy hydrographic and topographic data, even in critic...

The fully integrated RIEGL LMS-Q1560 ultra wide area airborne mapping system: Providing up to 800kHz PRR and 530,000 points/sec on the ground it can be used at up to 15,500 feet AGL. Operation at varying altitudes allows for surveying ultra-wide areas as well as complex urban environments. The LMS-Q1560's unique, innovative forward/backward and nadir-looking capability enables the most accurate data capture from multiple angles, resulting in the best point spacing on the ground. Additional sensors like medium-format or IR camera can easily be integrated into the compact single-unit design suited also for gyro-stabilised levelling mounts.
HawkScan is a high-accuracy airborne laser scanning system for low altitude surveying missions. The compact all-in-one design make it very easy to install on various low altitude flight platforms, including heli-copters, rotorcrafts, delta wings and large UAVs, and to accomplish various surveying missions with high flexibility and efficiency.
The presentation reviews several simulation techniques for accurately evaluating radar system performance and may reduce system deployment risks and costs. Handling moving Tx/Rx platforms for Airborne, Space-Borne and Ship based radars is key in determining system performance. It is important to include radar environmental scenarios for interference, clutter, jamming/deception, and radar cross section (RCS). These simulation techniques can be used to analyze advanced radar systems such as phased array, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO), active/passive, and multi-static radar systems. Application examples will be demonstrated.
The Xaver™ AID (Airborne Imaging Drone) is a tactical unmanned VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) drone with the unique capability of providing real-time detection of life through the roof of a structure. The Xaver™ AID utilizes the innovative, radar based technology already fielded with the Xaver™ family of through-wall imaging systems. The Xaver™ AID with its additional optical payloads provides a full situational awareness picture both through the structure and of the surrounding area, with features that include: Real-time intelligence -- Radar based detection of life inside the structure, as well as day/night optical imaging of the surrounding area Quick and user-friendly operation - Simple operation with quick deployment and autonomous flight control and landing Optional pa...
The RIEGL VQ-880-G is a fully integrated airborne laser scanning system for combined hydrographic and topographic surveying. The system is offered with integrated and factory-calibrated highend GNSS/IMU system and camera. The design allows flexible adaptation of these components to specific application requirements. Complemented by a RIEGL data recorder, the RIEGL VQ-880-G is a complete LIDAR system to be installed on various platforms in a straightforward way.
Riegl's James Van Rens discusses the company's airborne and UAV solutions at Intergeo 2016, which is being held Oct. 11-13 in Hamburg, Germany. Riegl unveiled its VQ-1560i dual lidar channel airborne laser-scanning system and miniVUX-1UAV lidar sensor.
First experiment with the Velodyne VLP-16 LiDAR 'Puck' mounted on a brushless gimbal on a Devourer X8 heavy-lift multi-rotor UAV. The sensor mount also includes the Advanced Navigation Spatial DUAL GPS/IMU unit and a machine vision camera. This was a first trial of the laser scanner over a small pine stand near South Arm in southern Tasmania, Australia. This project is part of the TerraLuma research group at the University of Tasmania, supported by Supported by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) New South Wales and the Forest and Wood Products Australia Limited (FWPA).

The VQ-820-G Hydrographic Airborne Laser Scanner is specifically designed to survey seabeds or ground of rivers or lakes integrated into a Complete Platform for Airborne Scanning, simply installed in any type of aircraft platform, e.g. fixed wing or helicopter. More information: www.riegl.com
Dr. Chris Hopkinson discusses airborne laser scanning - what it is, and how it is used. Airborne laser scanning maps ground and near ground surface coordinates at a very high resolution. The presentation covers what types of data can be collected this way, and some applications for use. Dr. Chris Hopkinson is a LiDAR project design and proposal consultant with Otterburn Geographic and now with the University of Lethbridge.
