Standish, Mich. — Geospatial service provider Surveying Solutions, Inc. (SSI) purchased its second VMX Mobile LiDAR system. SSI's acquisition of the new RIEGL VMX-1HA will aid in expansion of the firm’s mapping portfolio. SSI is also the first firm in the U.S. to purchase the new VMX-1HA system. With an increase demand for highly detailed, design-grade datasets, SSI will continue to meet the needs of their clients. 

“This acquisition will allow SSI to continue to stay on the forefront of the mobile mapping market”, says President of SSI, Andrew Semenchuk. “SSI has had an outstanding relationship with RIEGL since the purchase of our first VMX mobile system in 2011 and we have pushed the limits of their equipment and software. Since then, RIEGL has responded with the VMX-1HA which we have found to be the premier Mobile LiDAR system on the market today. SSI is proud to add this system to our mobile mapping operations.”

The RIEGL VMX-1HA is a high-speed, high-performance dual-scanner Mobile Mapping System that provides dense, accurate, and feature-rich data at highway speeds. As a complete data collection package capturing 2 million measurements and 500 scan lines per second, this turnkey solution is ideally suited for survey-grade mobile mapping applications. The system’s lightweight, compact and rugged laser scanners are also easily mountable to all of SSI’s LiDAR platforms for scanning by road, rail, off-road, or boat.

“Five years ago, SSI decided to use a VMX-250 – the first generation of RIEGL mobile mapping systems – for their mobile mapping operations to provide their customers with top of the line surveying data. We are very excited that SSI has again decided to trust the latest state-of-the-art RIEGL laser scanning technology and purchased – as the first customer in the USA – the recently released RIEGL VMX-1HA”, said Harald Teufelsbauer, RIEGL Product Manager Mobile Laser Scanning. “This turnkey dual scanner mobile mapping system comprises the newest generation high-speed, high-accuracy RIEGL VUX-1HA LiDAR sensors and a further improved IMU/GNSS unit. Data acquisition at highway driving speeds and a seamless RIEGL processing workflow will enable SSI to deliver extremely dense, feature-rich, highly accurate, precisely geo-referenced, true-colored point clouds – resulting in excellent mission results. We look forward to further our outstanding, long-term relationship with SSI.”
