Windcube® Lidar solutions are changing the way organizations sense and resolve atmospheric risk.
Windcube® is an advanced remote sensing technology that measures the Doppler shift in airborne aerosols. Light frequency Doppler shift is directly proportional to radial wind speed, and therefore is able to provide highly accurate, real time wind speed and direction measurements including turbulence intensities and other boundary layer characteristics.
Windcube® solutions provide real time characterizations as well as temporal and spatial evolution of airborne particulates, enabling wind reconstruction data on par with an IEC calibrated met mast, and providing immediate actionable intelligence to make informed business decisions.
WINDCUBE® Vertical Profiling Lidar
Windcube® Lidar are recognized as the market standard for superior performance for meteorological lower boundary layer sensing, wind resource assessment and wind farm performance monitoring. Windcube® is a lightweight system featuring four cardinal radial laser beams and one vertically oriented beam to collect data to 200 meters above ground level. Ultra-portable at 45 kg, Windcube® Lidar can be quickly and easily deployed for real time collection of data. With multiple communications options, and the optional Flow Complexity Recognition (FCR) complex terrain solution, Windcube® operates reliably in any climate or terrain and provides accurate decisions intelligence.
