Our Lidar technology provides atmospheric scientists and meteorological professionals with real-time, highly resolved decisions intelligence.

The weather affects us all. Whether for use in developing state-of-the-science predictive models or to verify the state of the lower troposphere for commercial interests, NRG Systems places the power of atmospheric intelligence in your hands.

We enable research, industrial, and corporate professionals with a requirement for accurate, real-time boundary layer information to resolve uncertainty and make informed decisions—in an ever-changing environment.

World-renowned organizations throughout the professional weather enterprise choose Windcube® Lidar for its global acceptance, proven scientific pedigree, and track record of missions-critical performance excellence.

NRG Systems helps you quantify and predict atmospheric risk.

Provide highly resolved, real-time analyses of the atmosphere

The Planetary Boundary Layer is in constant flux. Horizontal and vertical measurements of momentum, mass, and heat transfer properties are the foundation of sound atmospheric physics, accurate depiction of the lower atmosphere, and skillful predictive modeling. Windcube® Lidar enables real-time, 3D detection capabilities for parameters including spatial wind variance, vertical velocity distribution, low-level jet maxima, surface heat flux, and mixing ratios—in micro, meso and macro-scale regimes.

Monitor convective weather system initiation and evolution

A sound empirical approach to mesoscale convective forecasting relies on timely, accurate spatial observations of a multivariate environment. In other words, a forecast is only as good as the quality of the observed state of the atmosphere on which it is based. Atmospheric scientists and operational meteorologists rely on Windcube® to provide real-time assessments of mesoscale outflow boundaries, gust fronts, drylines, and other air mass interactions critical to valuable severe weather forecasts and alerts.

Provision skill and research advances in Mesoscale Modeling

Leading atmospheric scientists from NOAA’s Earth Systems Research Laboratory (ESRL), The Department of Energy’s Renewable Energy Research Laboratory (NREL), the University at Albany’s Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (SUNY ASRC), Meteo-France, the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), Queensland University Australia, and dozens of others academic and research institutions trust Windcube® Lidar with transformative new advances in decisions intelligence—and so can you.

Provide synergy and enterprise solutions capabilities with other remote sensing technologies

An ever-changing environment demands versatile, configurable, and highly resolved remote sensing solutions. Whether to provide low-level wind shear alerts for airport operators or outflow mass boundary movements in developing severe thunderstorms, Windcube® Lidar is designed to provide accurate decisions intelligence as an integrated environmental monitoring solution alongside Radar, Radiometer, Ceilometer, and Mesonet instrumentation.
