The VQ-1460 is one of RIEGL‘s latest airborne laser scanning systems, which sets a new standard for a wide field of applications – from high-point density wide area mapping to ultra-high resolution city mapping or corridor mapping.
The unique design features pulse repetition rates from 4.4 MHz, resulting in a regular point spacing and an almost constant point density distribution on the ground. The system features large measurement distances of up to 2300 m at maximum PRR, and 5400 m at minimum PRR, for a target reflectance of 20 %, which results in an unmatched high efficiency of e.g. up to 710 km²/h at 150 knots flying speed for an average of 4 points per square meter.
A newly designed optical fronted significantly minimizes for near-range echoes due to atmospheric clutter, resulting in clean point clouds. Online-Waveform processing and full-waveform processing capabilities are a matter of course for this class of equipment.
Scan data and camera images are stored on removable hard disks that can be accessed directly on the device, eliminating the need for an external data recorder.
A high-performance IMU/GNSS unit and one or two optional high-resolution RGB/NIR cameras are seamlessly integrated in the compact and user-friendly designed housing. The standardized mounting flange fits typical hatches or gyro-stabilized leveling mounts for maintaining optimum point distribution.
