Terrestrial Laser Scanner

We are proud to announce that added a terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS)

to our toolkit for science applications - a State-of-the-Art Riegl VZ400i.

  • High laser pulse repetition rate of up to 1.2 MHz

  • High speed data acquisition up to 500,000 measurements/sec

  • Wide field of view, 100°x360°

  • Range up to 800 m, accuracy 5 mm

This new addition is enabled through a close cooperation with the Maxim Foundation in Cairns, also a science-oriented Not-For-Profit organisation.

The TLS can be used as a stand-alone sensor

or make a powerful combination with the existing ARA airborne Lidars (ALS).
