SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Digital Forum 2020: RIEGL's scientific presentations now online!


This year's SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing Conference scheduled for April 27 – May 8, 2020 had to be held as Digital Forum due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


More than 3,600 people signed up for the opportunity to participate in the free event. Authors shared emerging research and technology advances in sensors, infrared technology, laser systems, spectral imaging, radar, LIDAR, AI/machine learning, and more. The community heard from experts working on materials, components, systems, and analytics for defense, security, and commercial applications.

RIEGL presented two scientific presentations on bathymetry, which are now available for you at our website:

Paper 11410-18
"Comparison of different methods to compute Total Propagation Uncertainty for airborne bathymetric LiDAR"
by Antoine G. Cottin et al.

Paper 11410-19
"Waveform-averaging airborne laser bathymetry scanner"
by Martin Pfennigbauer et al.

Watch the presentations and get a deeper insight into the technology used for application of LiDAR data in topo-bathymetric surveying!
