RIEGL VUX-240 wins the Wichmann INTERGEO Innovation Award 2019!


During the closing event of INTERGEO 2019 on Thursday, September 19, the RIEGL VUX-240 Airborne Laser Scanner was awarded with the coveted glass trophy in the hardware category.

This annual award has been awarded now for eight years. Despite strong competition, the lightweight and versatile VUX-240 convinced both the jury of experts and the public with its high performance, efficiency, and user friendliness. The scanner can be easily mounted to unmanned platforms (UAVs), as well as to helicopters, gyrocopters, and other small manned aircrafts. With an extremely fast data acquisition rate, the sensor is perfectly suited for high point density corridor mapping applications like power line, railway track or pipeline inspections or topography in open-cast mining.

RIEGL would like to thank Wichmann Verlag for this prestigious honor and thank the audience for their worldwide support in voting for the RIEGL VUX-240!
