In further development of the RIEGL VQ-480 Airborne Laser Scanner Series – the RIEGL VQ-480 II presents itself in a completly new design that successfully takes up the already proven qualities and leads them to a new standard of performance and user-friendliness.

Its sophisticated design allows to further reduce the overall weight resulting in approx. 10 kg. Thus, the scanner is well suited for the use in manned but also in unmanned aircrafts. The VQ-480 II can seamlessly be integrated into stabilized platforms, e.g. standard gyromounts, and also into even small hatches.
