The government delegation in Geneva said Sri Lanka will continue its policy of peace and reconciliation ad will also continue to defend the independence and the prerogatives of the Human Rights Council.Meanwhile the delegation also said it has sought a clarification on the allegations that members of the government delegation had threatened and intimidated human rights defenders.However the delegation says so far it has not received any clarification. (Colombo Gazette) However the government delegation did not name the country it sees as a dictator although it was apparent Sri Lanka was referring to the U.S which pushed for the resolution on Sri Lanka and which was subsequently adopted.Sri Lanka called for unity in the common struggle to defend its sovereignty, independence, and the free choice of the people to shape their own society and destiny. “Today one country deems itself the depository of a mission to dictate to the rest of the world its vision of democracy, of human rights, of development. Is any of us safe from becoming the next target, the object of pressure, even of military aggression, the detriment of our peoples and their right to life?” the statement said. Sri Lanka has warned that there is an attempt by one country to dictate to the world through which arises the threat of pressure or even military aggression.A statement by Sri Lanka to the UN Human Rights Council on the closing day of its 19th session yesterday (Friday) also notes that pressure and various other methods were used to obtain support for the U.S sponsored resolution on Sri Lanka. The statement said that Sri Lanka rejects all form of unilateralism, threats, sanctions, blockades, conditionality and an orchestrated disinformation campaign on the country.
RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems’ VMX-250 Mobile Scanning System, which was first introduced at the INTERGEO Exhibition, Karlsruhe, 2009, is now readily available. It consists of two RIEGL VQ-250 ‘full circle’ laser scanners, which combined can achieve 600,000 measurements per second, enabling extremely fast, efficient and highly mapping. The system configuration further comprises the latest, modular IMU/GPS unit. The revolutionary RIEGL technologies ‘Echo Signal Digitisation’ and ‘Online Waveform Analysis’ result in excellent multi-target detection, even of 3D data of objects that are obscured by physical entities in the foreground (fences, vegetation, etc.). This opens new capabilities for the processing and transformation of the measured data into a 3D computer model.“Effort for installation and starting up the VMX-250 is limited to a minimum. The compact and light design of the measuring unit allows it to be mounted onto any commercial car roof carrier, it is connected to the control unit (located inside the car) with a single cable, and can easily be operated via touchscreen” said Nikolaus Studnicka, RIEGL’s International Sales Manager.The RIEGL VMX-250 also features a very compact design and ease of use, user friendly workflow, and seamless integration of the INS data. The digital interfaces of the VMX-250 System are prepared also for the integration of a customer specified camera system.The installed IMU sensor with its minimum export restrictions allows the RIEGL VMX-250 system to be delivered and operated practically worldwide.
