After last year’s presentation of the RiCOPTER, the first fully integrated UAV-based LiDAR surveying solution from one manufacturer, we today proudly showcased our latest development in UAS-based laser scanning: the RIEGL BathyCopter.
The BathyCopter is the world’s first Small-UAV-based surveying system capable of measuring through the water surface, ideally suited for generating profiles of rivers or water reservoirs. The robust and reliable platform design integrates the topo-bathymetric green laser depth-meter, an IMU/GNSS unit with antenna, a control unit and a digital camera.
The RIEGL INTERGEO booth 2015 this year comes with a special UAV island with RiCOPTER, Bathycopter, and partner UAVs on display. Swiss Aeroscout is showing the VUX-1UAV in their Scout B1-100 and French Delair-Tech is displaying the VUX-1UAV in their fixed wing, long endurance UAV DT26X demonstrating the versatility of the RIEGL VUX-1UAV LiDAR sensor.
At INTERGEO’s UAV Flight zone the outstanding flight performance of the RiCOPTER will be demonstrated during several demo flights.
