NOTE: The Spidar Vertical Profiler has been discontinued as of August, 2021. The next generation of Direct Detect Lidar from NRG Systems will be available in 2022. We encourage you to consider the ZX 300 Wind Lidar for your remote sensing campaign needs. Please see this end-of-life announcement for more details or contact us directly with questions.

Direct Detect Lidar
Direct Detect Lidar technology provides bankable wind measurements data ideal for wind resource assessment, wind farm operations, forecasting, research, and meteorological applications. Its unique measurement principle offers lower cost and a smaller cone angle than other wind Lidars. Spidar is used most often for early-stage prospecting and wind shear validation studies within the wind energy industry, and over 150 have been delivered to dozens of customers around the world.

Spidar Verification
Spidar was independently verified by several leading wind energy consultants. This includes eight separate tests by DNV GL, who consider it a Stage 2 remote sensing device, capable of adding value to wind farm developments with project finance requirements.
