RIEGL’s topo-bathymetric airborne product portfolio has been further expanded to address the growing needs of the US Geological Survey’s 3D Hydrography Program, NOAA’s National Bathymetric Source, as well as the US Army Corps of Engineers’ water management initiatives. With the launch of two new mid-sized sensors, the VQ-860-G and the VQ-840-GERIEGL topo-bathymetric sensors are capable of greater flexibility with respect to platform compatibility and can now be deployed on many variations of airborne platforms, including: small aircraft, helicopters, and larger UAVs, particularly as it relates to inland waters data collection in complex terrain where larger aircraft may be un-suitable. These new sensors provide a more economical alternative to inland and coastal topo-bathymetric data collection while maintaining high point-density capability and improved depth performance with a cost-effective entry to the market.
