Riegl Laser Measurement Systems GmbH released its latest state-of-the-art airborne laser scanner, the LMS-Q680i - Class 1 for FAA Rotocraft. The scanner uses reduced laser power to achieve the important Class 1 rating the FAA policy dictates. The risk to a person in the area around the LMS-Q680i - Class 1 scanner is zero. The system has the same 266,000-measurements-at-the-ground performance for unrivaled point density as well as an unmatched laser pulse repetition rate of 400 KHz. The new unit offers the established industry-leading echo digitization for in-depth full waveform analysis, now smoothly combined with multiple-time-around signal processing. A scan rate of up to 200 lines per second at a constant 60-degree field-of-view makes this product ideal for city modeling, power line monitoring and coastal mapping. The scanner can also be used for forestry and DEM model generation applications. (www.rieglusa.com)
