The renowned VUX-120²³ laser scanner from RIEGL has been seamlessly integrated into the innovative VTOL CarryAir by StriekAir engineering GmbH from Germany.

During its inaugural flight, this remarkable duo successfully captured accurate data of the ground structure.

Precision meets speed
The RIEGL VUX-120²³ laser scanner is globally recognized for its exceptional precision and accuracy in aerial surveys. By integrating this cutting-edge technology into the VTOL CarryAir by StriekAir engineering GmbH, the advantages of both technologies are combined in the best manner. Its cruising speed of 85 km/h offers an optimal combination of point cloud density and efficient data acquisition.
