RIEGL USA is proud to announce that Phoenix Aerial Systems has purchased its first VUX-1 UAS LiDAR scanner.
The VUX-1 was developed as an innovative, new class of LiDAR sensor to meet the challenges of emerging surveying solutions by UAS, UAV, RPAS, gyrocopters, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance and in system integration.
"Phoenix Aerial is excited to offer the new RIEGL VUX-1 as a LiDAR sensor option to our customers because it takes data accuracy and range to a whole new level. The vegetation penetration of this sensor is incredible and we're certain this product will be a game changer for applications that demand multiple returns; i.e. forestry, precision agriculture, power line, pipeline, railway inspection and terrain mapping." said Grayson Omans, CEO of Phoenix Aerial Systems.
Phoenix Aerial will be attending the RIEGL LIDAR 2015 international user conference in Hong Kong and Guangzhou, China (May 5-8), to discuss their first experiences with its new VUX-1 sensor with the international RIEGL community.
The VUX-1 is a very lightweight and compact LiDAR scanner, designed to be mounted in any orientation and even under limited weight and space conditions. It has a 330 degree field-of-view, a highly effective measurement rate of up to 500,000 measurements per second, fast scan speed of up to 200 scans per second and it produces the extremely high quality data users expect from a RIEGL product. In the first year after the official product introduction at ILMF 2014, almost 30 RIEGL VUX-1 LiDAR sensors have been shipped and successfully employed by customers around the world!
