WindSentinel

The WindSentinel™ is a wind resource assessment buoy that uses LiDAR to accurately measure wind speed, wind direction, and turbulence offshore at turbine hub-height and across the blade span.

  • ±20 metre range gate probe depth allows for real-world measurements from 30m to 200m.
  • Uses the Vindicator® III, a simultaneous pulse LiDAR specifically designed to accurately measure wind from a moving platform.
  • The LiDAR uses three fixed beams to take measurements at six range gates.Uses the WatchMan500™ controller to integrate sensor systems and provide onboard data processing, data logging, telemetry and diagnostic/set up routines.
  • Two-way capability allows remote system management, including configuration and diagnostics to all onboard systems and data in real time.
  • Sensors and components have been engineered into the AXYS NOMAD buoy: a well proven proprietary platform designed to perform in extreme offshore marine environments.
  • A variety of telemetry options are available, including UHF/VHF, Inmarsat IsatData Pro, Iridium, GPRS/HSPA and CDMA/EVDO.
