Wide Area Airborne LiDAR Scanner

Thanks to Gene Roe and LiDAR News for sharing the following video on the new state-of-the-art  Riegl LMS-Q1560.  This sensor will collect LiDAR, true color, and infrared at the same time.  Seems like we are well overdue for a sensor system that can collect all that we need on one pass instead of having to go back multiple times.  And, Riegl has integrated it into a new aircraft and is selling a turnkey system.  I like the camera, but I am not sold on the aircraft. The sensor system looks very promising:
