The Technology of Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB)

Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) is the preferred technology for coastal mapping and inland water survey. It enables the seamless collection of high-resolution data sets covering the land/water interface, allowing for efficient surveying of topography both above and below the water surface.

In addition to the versatile RIEGL VQ-840-GL, RIEGL has introduced two new topo-bathymetric scanners:

RIEGL VQ-860-G
The NEW RIEGL VQ-860-G High Performance Topo-Bathymetric Airborne Laser Scanner offers enhanced depth penetration for surveying inland and near shore waters, significantly increasing efficiency in bathymetric applications. With typical flight altitudes from 75 m to 600 m above the water surface, high spatial resolution, measurement rates of up to 100 kHz, and a high scanning speed of up to 100 scans/sec, this compact system offers a large operational envelope.

RIEGL VQ-840-GE
The NEW RIEGL VQ-840-GE expands the proven VQ-840-G series of topo-bathymetric airborne laser scanners with a compact and robust design, suitable for integration into UAVs, crewed helicopters, and stabilized platforms.

The RIEGL topo-bathymetric systems portfolio provides high operational flexibility. These new scanners will be showcased at Remote Hydrography in Dublin from February 27-28, 2024, and at Oceanology International in London, ExCel, from March 12-14, 2024. The RIEGL Team looks forward to meeting you there!
