VUX-1UAV Survey-Grade Unmanned Laser Scanners 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.



Main Features:
  • 10 mm survey-grade accuracy
  • Scan speed up to 200 scans / second
  • Measurement rate up to 500,000 meas./sec (@ 550 kHz PRR & 330° FOV)
  • Operating flight altitude up to more than 1,000 ft
  • Field of view up to 330° for practically unrestricted data acquisition
  • Regular point pattern, perfectly parallel scan lines
  • Cutting edge RIEGL technology providing
    • Echo signal digitization
    • Online waveform processing
    • Multiple-time-around processing
  • Multiple target capability - practically unlimited number of targets echoes
  • Compact (227x180x125 mm), lightweight (3.5 kg), and rugged
  • Easily mountable to professional UAS / UAV / RPAS
  • Mechanical and electrical interface for IMU mounting
  • Electrical interfaces for GPS data string and Sync Pulse (1PPS)
  • LAN-TCP/IP interface
  • Scan data storage on internal 240 GByte SSD Memory
Specifications:
  • 10 mm survey grade accuracy
  • 5 mm precision
  • Operating flight altitude up to more than 1,000 ft
  • Field of view up to 330°
  • 3 m minimum range
  • Eye safe operation at Laser Class 1
  • Main dimensions: 227 mm x 180 mm x 125 mm
  • Weight: 3.5 kg (without cooling fan device) / 3.75 kg (with cooling fan device)

Main Applications:

  • Agriculture & forestry
  • Archaeology and cultural heritage documentation
  • Corridor Mapping: power line, railway track, and pipeline inspection
  • Topography in open-cast mining
  • Construction-site monitoring
  • Surveying of urban environments
  • Resource management
