Manassas, Va.-based Catch the Wind Ltd. (CTW), developer and manufacturer of the Vindicator laser wind sensor (LWS) and other sensor products, has signed a trial program agreement with Helimax Energy Inc, an independent consulting firm specializing in utility-scale wind energy project development.

CTW and Helimax have mutually agreed to test and compare the performance of the Vindicator LWS with a meteorological tower. The Vindicator system will facilitate the measurement of the wind profile at several intervals from 50 meters to 300 meters to accurately characterize the wind resource available to wind farm developers and operators.

"We believe that third-party validation of our laser wind sensing technology will result in faster market acceptance of the Vindicator, as well as increased sales over the long term," says Phil Rogers, president and CEO of CTW

The trial program, which will take place at a field site in Quebec, is expected to be complete by Nov. 30.
