Surface Remote
Compact and reliable wind lidar. DWL is a wind profiler using lidar coherent detection technology for very accurate measurement of the wind with infrared laser (down to 0.2m/s, profile every 10s). Various range resolution can be provided (from 20 to 100m) depending on the maximum range to reach. DWL is using four lines of sight to retrieve for the horizontal wind speed and direction, and turbulence parameters. A hemispherical scanning capability can be provided for 3D retrieval of the wind field.
