RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems (Austria) and Aeroscout (Switzerland) have announced a strategic partnership between the two companies. The partnership strengthens both RIEGL and Aeroscout’s UAV LiDAR leadership role in the industry by reinforcing long-term cooperation between the two companies and expands the portfolio of products that RIEGL offers to meet UAV LiDAR mapping demands.

RIEGL and Aeroscout have worked closely for many years. As a pioneer in the UAV LiDAR field, Aeroscout has integrated RIEGL scanners into many of their systems. In 2016, RIEGL and Aeroscout strengthened their long-standing business relationship by entering into a strategic partnership, which both companies expect to benefit their technological exchange and input for future development of highly advanced UAV platforms with integrated LiDAR solutions. This partnership further strengthens both RIEGL and Aeroscout’s UAV LiDAR leadership role in the industry by reinforcing long-term cooperation between the two companies and expands the portfolio of products that RIEGL offers to meet UAV LiDAR mapping demands.

“The cooperation, now based upon RIEGL’s shareholdership in Aeroscout, will further intensify the already existing bond between the two firms and benefit both our companies’ position in the international markets by offering an even broader array of highly advanced, survey-grade LiDAR sensors integrated in complementary UAV/UAS platforms: RIEGL’s electrically powered multi-rotor RiCOPTER and Aeroscout’s piston-engine powered helicopter-type Scout″, said Dr. Johannes Riegl, RIEGL CEO.

Dr. Christoph Eck, Aeroscout CEO said, “We are very excited about this partnership with the worldwide known RIEGL company. This partnership motivates us to further concentrate on our UAV system performance and future technical specifications.“

“Together with RIEGL products, we have already been operating our UAV LiDAR solution in many countries world-wide and we know from our field experience how important it is to rely on the right partner under real-world conditions.”, he said.
