The RIEGL VQ-480 II provides high speed, non-contact data acquisition using a narrow infrared laser beam and a fast line scanning mechanism. Development of its new design successfully takes up 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.
