Somerville, Mass.-headquartered Second Wind Inc. has introduced the Triton sonic wind profiler, which is designed to address the common challenges that have limited the use of sodar for wind resource assessment, the company says.

"We are confident this sodar system will immediately become a popular choice for profiling. It functions like a 200-meter met mast with the added benefit of being completely portable," explains Second Wind president Walter Sass.

Second Wind adds that the Triton captures accurate wind data at height up to 200 meters, in any weather, at any location, and without being attended. Readings are delivered via satellite and look like anemometry results, with no expert analysis required to understand the data.

In addition, a hexagonal speaker array on the unit focuses sound beams more effectively than previous designs, thus improving signal-to-noise ratio accuracy and decreasing disruption.
