The RIEGL® LMS-Q780 long-range airborne laser scanner makes use of a powerful laser source, multiple-time-around (MTA) processing, and digital full waveform analysis. This combination allows the operation at varying flight altitudes and is therefore ideally suited for aerial survey of complex terrain.
Unique features of this instrument include the automated resolution of range ambiguities, typically occurring at large measurement ranges and high repetition rates. The effect of range ambiguities appearing in airborne laser scanning is known as “multiple-time-around” or “multiple-pulses-in-the-air. RIEGL’s new generation of airborne laser scanners overcome this limitation by multiple-time-around (MTA) processing.
The RIEGL LMS-Q780, with more than 10 simultaneous pulses in the air, results in the best point spacing on the ground. This eliminates the need of terrain following while retaining a high effective rate. Industry leading digital signal processing, combined with the comprehensive RIEGL Software Suite, delivers best in class results.
