FLYING-CAM releases the first professional and portable Flying-Scanner, using RIEGL VUX-1 survey-grade LiDAR sensor

Berlin, October 7th, 2014 – At INTERGEO 2014 in Berlin, the Austrian market leader in 3D laser scanning RIELG displays the Flying-Cam 3.0 SARAH equipped with the brand new RIEGL VUX-1 survey-grade LiDAR sensor in order to offer a professional and fully integrated turnkey solution. Per Dr. Johannes Riegl say, « Flying-Cam is providing the most advanced paltform to carry the VUX-1 and I’m proud to give SARAH a place in the RIEGL sky ».

Compared to others, the SARAH solution offers a proprietary Autopilot that has been designed in-house for industrial and professional applications. It includes triple redundancy up-link for city operations, long range radio modem, centimeter grade GNSS and dual antenna true heading solution. A tailor-made 3D Graphic User Interface provides features like automatic path modeling and the possibility to load many different mapping data sources. Furthermore, the single rotor design offers superior wind resistance, longer flight time and higher altitude capabilies than any multi-rotor systems.

Mr Previnaire is confident about the future of Remote Sensing applications with SARAH as a global multi-mission-payload solution. He explains : “We are at the beginning of a new era, where sensors are free to move like never before, with unprecedented precision and access to users. In this new world we are didicated to provide the best of all solution.”.
