The RIEGL VUX-240 is a lightweight airborne laser scanner designed for fixed-wing and multirotor UAVs as well as unmanned helicopters. With scan speeds of up to 400 lines per second, the system can efficiently and accurately cover large areas even from fast-moving UAVs.
A 75-degree field of view and ultra-fast data acquisition rate of up to 1.8 MHz makes the sensor ideally suited for high point density corridor mapping applications. RIEGL’s state-of-the-art Waveform-LiDAR technology provides echo digitization, online waveform processing, and multi-target capability for penetrating even dense foliage.
The VUX-240 provides an internal data storage capacity of 1 TByte, and can be interfaced to an external IMU/GNSS as well as up to four external cameras. The sensor can be directly accessed via WLAN, allowing users to quickly and easily change configuration settings and check system status.
