REMTECH’S PA-XS DOPPLER SODAR systems measure remotely a vertical profile of wind speed, direction, thermal stratification and turbulence parameters (sigma W, sigma Theta) up to 400 meters average altitude range.
They are ideally suited for wind energy site assessment, airport safety (wind shear detection), for air pollution control and forecast, site surveys (power plants). Military organizations are using the SODAR in programs for weapons development, parachuting, landing on aircraft carriers as well as flight tests in general.
For local remote control a powerful netbook is supplied. It interconnects with the Sodar through WiFi at a distance of up to a one hundred meters.
