ClearSkies Geomatics Inc. (Colorado, USA) has recently made an investment in a RIEGL VQ-1560 II-S Airborne Laser Scanner, which will serve as the cornerstone of their rental systems.

The VQ-1560 II-S continues the legacy of RIEGL’s successful dual-channel laser scanner series. It boasts increased laser power, enabling operational altitudes to be extended to 1700 m AGL at a pulse repetition rate of 4 MHz, or up to 3900 m AGL at a pulse repetition rate of 540 kHz (all values given for 20% target reflectance).

These enhanced maximum ranges will increase the system’s productivity by approximately 25%, while maintaining an attractive point density range. Laser pulse repetition rates can be fine-tuned in 12 kHz steps, allowing for subtle optimization of acquisition parameters to meet specific project requirements.

The VQ-1560 II-S’s unique cross-fire scan pattern provides the maximum wide-area coverage for various forestry and corridor applications, making it the leading choice for the industry.

“We are extremely pleased that ClearSkies has committed and invested in RIEGL aerial sensors and technologies to enable existing and future customers in their short-term capacity requirements.” commented Michael Sitar, Airborne Division Manager for RIEGL USA. “ClearSkies presented to us a unique business model designed to support the aerial survey industry with access to the latest in aerial LiDAR sensor solutions for mid to large collection programs.”

ClearSkies Geomatics Inc., a prominent industry leader within the geospatial community, is well-versed with a variety of remote sensing platforms and technologies, aligning perfectly with the needs of clients with large project requirements. By committing to purchase a RIEGL VQ-1560 II-S, ClearSkies ensures that the airborne community will be well-equipped with the appropriate solution.

“ClearSkies Geomatics is thrilled to be able to offer our clients around the world with the opportunity to rent this high-accuracy RIEGL VQ-1560 II-S.” said Patrick McConnell, President of ClearSkies Geomatics Inc. “This sensor system will be our premier system available for short-term rentals and enables us to meet this important need in the aerial survey industry. RIEGL USA’s support for our growing sensor rental services is critical for our success and we look forward to our continued relationship.”
