VUX-1UAV, Survey-Grade Laser Scanner for UAS/UAV-based laser scanning

The RIEGL VUX-1UAV (former VUX-1) is a very lightweight and compact laser scanner, meeting the challenges of emerging survey solutions by UAS/UAV/RPAS, gyrocopter, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance as in system integration.

With regard to the specific restrictions and flight characteristics of UAS, the RIEGL VUX-1UAV is designed to be mounted in any orientation and even under limited weight and space conditions.

Modest in power consumption, the instrument requires only a single power supply. The entire data set of an acquisition campaign is stored onto an internal 240 GByte SSD and/or provided as real-time line scan data via the integrated LAN-TCP/IP interface.
