In further development of the RIEGL VQ-580 Airborne Laser Scanner Series – the RIEGL VQ-580 II presents itself in a completly new design that successfully takes up the already proven qualities and leads them to a new standard of performance and user-friendliness.

Its new sophisticated design allows to further reduce the overall weight and enables the seamless integration into stabilized platforms, e.g. standard gyromounts, and also into even small hatches. The scanner is well suited for the use in manned aircrafts like helicopters, small fixedwing aircrafts, or ultra-light planes.

The laser wavelength makes it especially suited for measurements on ice and snow.
