Blue Skies is Adding LiDAR Capabilities


Blue Skies has recently acquired a  RIEGL VQ-580 LiDAR system to add to our ever expanding services. The V-Line Airborne Laser Scanner RIEGL VQ-580 provides high speed, non-contact data acquisition using a narrow near-infrared laser beam and a fast line scanning mechanism. High-accuracy laser ranging is based on RIEGL's unique echo digitalization and online waveform processing, which allows achieving superior measurement results even under adverse atmospheric conditions, and the evaluation of multiple target echoes.
