VUX-1LR, Long Range Laser Scanner for airborne laser scanning

The VUX-1LR Long Range is a very lightweight, compact and rugged laser scanner, that was especially designed for airborne surveying missions from manned helicopters. The sensor provides a maximum measurement range of 1,350 m, an effective measurement rate of up to 750,000 measurements/sec., and an operating flight altitude of up to 1,740 ft AGL.

In conjuction with an appropriate IMU/GNSS unit with antenna, a control unit, and a digital camera the sensor is integrated into the VP-1 Helipod. This user-friendly turn-key solution can be easily mounted on standard hard points and typical camera mounts of manned helicopters for applications like, e.g., corridor mapping, power line, rail track and pipeline inspection.
