RIEGL and Aeroscout have worked closely for many years. As a pioneer in the UAV LiDAR field, Aeroscout has integrated RIEGL scanners into many of their systems.

This year, RIEGL and Aeroscout have strengthened their long-standing business relationship by entering into a strategic partnership. Both companies expect it to benefit their technological exchange and input for future development of UAV platforms with integrated LiDAR solutions. The partnership further strengthens both RIEGL and Aeroscout’s UAV LiDAR role in the industry by reinforcing long-term cooperation between the two companies and expands the portfolio of products that RIEGL offers to meet UAV LiDAR mapping demands.

“The cooperation, now based upon RIEGL's shareholdership in Aeroscout, will further intensify the already existing bond between the two firms and benefit both our companies’ position in the international markets by offering an even broader array of highly advanced, survey-grade LiDAR sensors integrated in complementary UAV/UAS platforms: RIEGL's electrically powered multi-rotor RiCOPTER and Aeroscout's piston-engine powered helicopter-type Scout,” says Johannes Riegl, RIEGL CEO.

“We are very excited about this partnership with the worldwide known RIEGL company. This partnership motivates us to further concentrate on our UAV system performance and future technical specifications,” says Christoph Eck, Aeroscout CEO.
