VQ-780i Waveform Processing Airborne Laser Scanner

The RIEGL VQ-780i is a high performance, rugged, lightweight, and compact airborne mapping sensor. This versatile system is designed for high efficient data acquisition at low, mid, and high altitudes, covering a variety of different airborne laser scanning applications from high density to ultra wide area mapping.

High speed rotating mirror design ensures reliability, and uniform point distribution across its entire wide field of view and at all flying altitudes. Based on RIEGL's proven Waveform-LiDAR technology, the system provides clutter-free point clouds with high accuracy, excellent vertical target resolution, calibrated reflectance readings, and pulse shape deviation for unsurpassed information content on each single measurement.

The system is complemented with RIEGL's advanced acquisition and data processing software suite that utilizes parallel computing (GPU) for fast data processing.

The scanner is designed to work with the latest Inertial Navigation (IMU) Systems, flight management systems, and camera options.
