RIEGL, Schiebel Cooperating on UAV-Based Airborne Scanning
RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems GmbH and Schiebel have completed the integration of a high-end laser scanning system, the RIEGL VQ-840-G topo-bathymetric LiDAR sensor, on the Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 Unmanned Air System (UAS).
The compact topo-bathymetric laser scanner was designed for use in a variety of maritime and hydrographic environments. The LiDAR sensor payload system is controlled remotely via a data link, which is crucial for the integration into the S-100 system.
The scanner is controlled by using the onboard software “RiACQUIRE-Embedded” via the available data link; data acquisition and laser safety are also monitored. Once the survey is completed, the raw data seamlessly integrates into the RIEGL data processing workflow.
