VQ-880-G Topo-Hydrographic Airborne Laser Scanners

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.

The RIEGL VQ-880-G carries out laser range measurements for high resolution surveying of underwater topography with a narrow, visible green laser beam, emitted from a powerful pulsed laser source. Subject to clarity, at this particular wavelength, the laser beam penetrates water enabling measurement of submerged targets.

The RIEGL VQ-880-G comprises a high precision inertial measurement sensor for subsequent precise estimation of the instrument's exact location and orientation. A high-resolution digital camera and optionally a additional infrared laser scanner are integrated to supplement the data gained by the green laser scanner. The rugged internal mechanical structure together with the dust- and splash water proof housing enables long-term operation on airborne platforms.


Main Features:
  • Designed for combined topographic and hydrographic airborne survey
  • High accuracy ranging based on echo digitization and online waveform processing with multiple-target capability
  • Multiple-time-around processing for straightforward mission planning and operation
  • Concurrent full waveform output for all measurements for subsequent full waveform analysis
  • High spatial resolution due to measurement rate of up to 550 kHz and high scanning speed of up to 160 scans/sec
  • Integrated inertial navigation system
  • Additional, fully integrated infrared laser scanner (optional)
  • Integrated digital camera(s)
  • Compact and robust housing compliant with typical hatches in aircrafts and with stabilized platforms

Main Applications:

  • Coastline and Shallow Water Mapping
  • Acquiring Base Data for Flood Prevention
  • Measurement for Aggradation Zones
  • Habitat Mapping
  • Surveying for Hydraulic Engineering
  • Hydro-Archaeological-Surveying
