AXYS Technologies Inc., a provider of offshore remote sensing systems, has partnered with Optical Air Data Systems to develop and manufacture the Vindicator Generation 3 Laser Wind Sensor for the AXYS WindSentinel floating wind resource assessment system.

The Vindicator Generation 3 Laser Wind Sensor combines the current Vindicator technology with lessons learned from the world's first commercially deployed floating LIDAR systems, and will feature wind resource data collection and a lens-cleaning solution specifically designed for the challenging marine environment, AXYS explains.

The WindSentinel is a floating buoy system that uses a simultaneously pulsing laser wind sensor to measure wind speed, wind direction and turbulence offshore at turbine hub height and across the blade span.
