Lockheed Martin’s WindOptimizer is an internet-accessible business intelligence tool for measurement, evaluation, management, and optimization of energy generation assets. It can be deployed on multiple computing platforms, including advanced multi-touch displays for control center operations, desktops, and mobile devices.

Integrating real-time data from WindTracer® lidar, WindOptimizer provides highly accurate short-term wind forecasts. By using WindOptimizer, various projects have demonstrated precise prediction of wind up-ramps and down-ramps greater than 30 minutes prior to arrival at the turbine locations. WindOptimizer monitors wind turbine activity with comprehensive evaluations and notifications, allowing for tracking and control of turbine performance. It produces reliable data for complete site management, ensuring that wind farm assets are maintained and operated to maximize energy production.
