NAKANIHON and RIEGL to Give Joint Presentation on Helicopter-based Airborne Bathymetric LiDAR Systems

After successfully integrating and mobilizing a brand new RIEGL VQ-880-GH Topo-Hydrographic Laser Scanning System last year, NAKANIHON will report on their first experiences and results at this year’s Joint Airborne Bathymetry LiDAR Technical Center of Expertise (JALBTCX) workshop in Providence, Rhode Island.

The presentation will be given by Kohei Wakamatsu from NAKANIHON’s research-survey division on Tuesday, June 26, at 10 a.m. and will be backed up by Dr. Martin Pfennigbauer from RIEGL.

Nakanihon is a Japanese general aviation company and a long-time valued RIEGL customer with over 40 years of experience in the airborne research and survey field. In 2017, the 5th generation of the helicopter-based airborne LiDAR system, which is referred to as SAKURA (stands for “Cherry Blossom”), was launched.

The 5th SAKURA iteration (called “SAKURA-GH”) utilizes the Airborne Laser Scanning System, the VQ-880-GH, which was developed by RIEGL in the same year, to address the industry’s need for helicopter operations.

In the presentation, Mr. Wakamatsu will highlight the benefits of helicopter-based airborne bathymetric LiDAR systems in terms of the topographic characteristics of Japan. Additionally, the installation carried out by Nakanihon and the technical realizations of a helicopter integration will be covered. Preliminary data examples and results will also be discussed.
