CEO Johannes Riegl unveils the new RIEGL BathyCopter at the Riegl INTERGEO booth in Stuttgart.

Following RIEGL‘s debut of the RiCOPTER at INTERGEO 2014, a fully integrated UAV-based lidar surveying solution, the company used INTERGEO 2015 in September to launch its new BathyCopter.

The BathyCopter is a small-UAV-based surveying system capable of measuring through the water surface. It’s suitable for generating profiles of rivers or water reservoirs. The platform design integrates a topo-bathymetric green laser depth-meter, an IMU/GNSS unit with antenna, a control unit and a digital camera. Applications include generation of river profiles, survey of reservoirs and canals, landscaping, support of construction projects, and surveys for planning and carrying out hydraulic engineering work.

Laser Scanner. RIEGL also offers the VQ-480-U laser scanner for UAVs, which provides high-speed data acquisition using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast line scanning mechanism.

High-accuracy laser ranging is based on RIEGL’s echo digitization and online waveform processing, which provides measurement results even under adverse atmospheric conditions, the company said.
