A full-size prototype of the FLIDAR has been successfully tested 15 kilometres off the Belgian coast. This is the first successful trial of a floating lidar device in real offshore conditions in the North Sea. Designed to withstand significant wave heights of over 6 metres, the FLIDAR system was tested in wind speeds up to 25m/s and proved highly accurate, with an r2 of over 0.99 when compared to reference lidar data.
