NRG Systems has announced that it has acquired a portfolio of technology developed by Pentalum, an Israeli company that specialised in remote sensing solutions for wind measurement.
Pentalum’s principal innovation was their patented Direct Detect Lidar technology with the aim to deliver high precision and reliability of Lidar at a lower cost compared to other Doppler Lidar technologies. The company deployed this technology in their SpiDAR Vertical Wind Profiler beginning in 2012 and it is now in use on five continents. NRG Systems will work with its global partner network to offer sales, technical support and integrated services, such as remote power supply. The company plans to begin shipping new SpiDAR units in early 2019 and will start offering complete service to existing SpiDAR customers in the coming weeks. NRG Systems will continue to work in close partnership with Leosphere to sell and support Leosphere’s Windcube Lidar in North America.
