Natural Power, a renewable energy consultancy based in south west Scotland has purchased an exclusive license to market QinetiQ's ZephIR wind speed measurement system to the wind energy industry.
The arrangements cover the rights to exploit QinetiQ's LiDAR technology, on which ZephIR is based, primarily in the wind energy market. QinetiQ retains exploitation rights in other markets particularly defence, security and aerospace. ZephIR is based on LiDAR technology (Light Detection and Ranging) and works by measuring the Doppler shift of laser radiation back scattered from moving objects in the air.
