The RIEGL LMS-Q160 is a compact and extremely lightweight 2D scanning laser radar optimized for detecting even low-cross-section targets such as wires, thin branches etc.
The instrument is designed for operation as an anti-collision sensor for unmanned airborne vehicles but can also be advantageously used for land vehicles and surveillance applications.
It is based on the time-of-flight measurement principle using short infrared laser pulses and opto-mechanical scanning to provide on-line range and angle data of targets within the scanner's field-of-view (FOV).
The instrument needs only one power supply and provides discrete line scan data, directly stored on a computer system, via the integrated LAN-TCP/IP interface. The binary data stream can easily be decoded and processed using the available software library.
The mechanical structure of the LMS-Q160 is extremely lightweight but on the other hand robust enough to withstand the shock and vibration load of land based or airborne vehicles.
