Light detection and ranging

  • Pentalum’s SpiDAR is a wind LiDAR system that is revolutionizing wind measurement and significantly improving the profitability of wind farms across the globe. The SpiDAR is an innovative and cost effective pulse wind LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) system for remote sensing of wind. Wind measurements are crucial to the establishment and daily operations of a wind farm.

  • Objective

    Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) is an optical remote sensing technology that can measure atmospheric properties by illuminating the target with laser light and analyzing the backscattered light. Current wind LIDAR systems operate on a fundamental concept of Doppler shifts and involve sophisticated expensive equipment. Other available systems require multiple spatially separated LIDAR sensors and expensive data acquisition systems to make wind profile measurements.
