WindTracer® for Wind Energy


With 100 years of experience driving innovation and solving our customer’s most complex technological challenges, Lockheed Martin now looks to apply its vast portfolio of proven capabilities to drive energy sustainability and security. Utilizing WindTracer®, the world’s most powerful long-range Doppler LIDAR system, Lockheed Martin is committed to aiding wind power developers and investors to capitalize on wind energy resources.

WindProspector® uses WindTracer data to produce high quality volumetric wind measurements for accurate wind resource assessment. Integrating data from WindTracer LIDAR, WindProspector provides superior wind resource assessment for wind farm developers, including terrain following wind maps, vertical shear information, time series measurements from hundreds of virtual met towers, and power predictions based on detailed measurements.

The end products are used to optimize wind turbine placement and selection, predict future farm performance, and lower assessment uncertainties which can allow for increased borrowing and return on investment for wind projects.
