The NEW high performance, fully integrated long-range airborne laser scanner system RIEGL LMS-Q1560 is a cutting-edge tool for a variety of airborne surveying missions. The two channel scanner makes use of a powerful laser source, multiple-time-around (MTA) processing, echo digitization and waveform analysis. This combination allows the operation at varying flight altitudes and is therefore ideally suited for aerial survey of ultra wide areas as well as of complex urban environments.
The RIEGL LMS-Q1560 can be operated at a maximum pulse repetition rate of 800 kHz providing an effective measurement rate of 530,000 measurements on the ground, and operates at an altitude of up to 15,500 ft. Usually occurring range ambiguities at this measurement rate are automatically resolved by RIEGL’s multiple time around processing software RiMTA, handling up to 10 pulses in the air, simultaneously. This enables the user to do effective flight planning even for difficult terrain, reducing the flying time significantly. The system allows the user to plan safe flights with sufficient clearance to terrain. The RIEGL LMS-Q1560 comes with a unique and innovative forward/backward looking capability. This enables capturing data from multiple angles more effectively and more accurately at high point density, along with a 60 degree field of view (FOV).
