Remote Sensing Revolution
Greater speed, flexibility, lower costs and reliable data will truly represent a revolution in the way the industry measures, understands and manages wind resources around the world.
Wind measurement technology and its uses have evolved apace with turbine technology and the push into new terrains. Remote sensing devices, offering a compelling alternative to met towers, are now used by industry leaders as essential tools in developing and operating wind projects.
How has remote sensing technology benefited the wind industry, and what is its potential?
In Remote Sensing Revolution, a report available only from Vaisala, ten wind industry leaders answer these questions, sharing their experiences from across the sector, as developers and operators, investors, consultants and manufacturers.
Remote Sensing Revolution includes the following special topics:
- Cold climate considerations
- Financing projects
- Optimizing operations
- Validation of remote sensing systems

A revolution in the way we measure, understand and manage wind resources around the world.
-Pascal Storck, in the Foreword
RS technology has a place in the wind industry and will continue to become more common...the utility of the technology is evident.
- Leading industry consultant, in "The Industry View" chapter
It may be possible to finance projects using only RS data in the medium to long-term.
- An investment principal, in "The Industry View" chapter
In a perfect world I would have a fleet of 50 SoDARs and use fewer met masts.
