LiDAR Services Takes Delivery of New Riegl Airborne Scanner.

LiDAR Services International (LSI) has taken delivery of a Riegl VQ-480 scanning laser that will be integrated into LSI’s 3rd MATRIX airborne LiDAR system.  The VQ-480 will be paired with a new Northrop-Grumman tactical grade, low noise IMU.
