RME Geomatics Purchases and Takes Delivery of Two RIEGL VUX-1's in Two Months

RIEGL USA is excited to announce that RME Geomatics purchased and took delivery of two RIEGL VUX-1 UAS laser scanners in two months!

The addition of the second VUX-1 to RME Geomatics will allow the company to aggressively expand their capacity through the installation of a permanent crew in Calgary. This crew will consolidate and expand the West Coast Canadian operations of RME Geomatics.

RME Geomatics is a subsidized division of a large publically traded company, Rocky Mountain Equipment, and with the influx of projects the company is receiving, the need for the highest quality and best capability is constantly growing. RME’s Renegade™, combined with the RIEGL VUX-1, will allow the company to continue to expand operations while providing the highest quality services to their customers.

RIEGL is thrilled to continue building our relationship with RME Geomatics and their customers to further build our joint presence in the unmanned and aerial industries.

“Using the RIEGL VUX-1 is simply the most robust and reliable way to rapidly expand our operations. The quality of the data and the way we can integrate it onto our Renegade™ UAV allows us to scale up in a way that no other current system can” said Stephen Davies, Head of Business Development of RME Geomatics.

The VUX-1 series of laser scanners are very lightweight and compact LiDAR sensors, designed to be mounted in any orientation and even under limited weight and space conditions. The VUX-1 series instruments was developed as an innovative, new class of LiDAR sensor to meet the challenges of emerging surveying solutions by UAS, UAV, RPAS, gyrocopters, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance and in system integration.
