|The Stream LineWind-Pro
unit is an autonomous, turn-key LiDAR system incorporating an
internal scanner housed in an environmental enclosure.
The internal scanner gives the
option for multiple scan orientations. If a
vertical beam is needed, then this can also be accommodated.
The GPS module ensures that the measurement time stamps are synchronised to UTC, and the telescopic mast
local temperature, pressure and humidity. The software will
begin measuring 2 minutes after power is applied, and will
ensure that the system is gracefully shut down in the event of
a sustained power cut. Email alerts can be enabled to warn of
power cuts, low storage space, auto-starting etc. The patented
window cover will keep the optical window clear of snow, rain,
condensation and ice ensuring maximum data availability under

Galion systems have always included a vertical ray by default
in the VAD scan arrangement. The Wind-Pro also has the option
to provide a vertical ray if required.
The screen shot above shows the setup tab of
the software. It is possible to choose the acquisition time per ray, how
often VAD processing is performed as well as the number of heights to log.
The ability to choose specific heights from 5 to 100 is available.
UDP data broadcasting allows data to be sent to any IP address, which can be a useful way
to both monitor the system, and to transfer the data.
10-minute averaged data are output as
standard, and real-time filtering can be applied to reduce the inclusion
of poor quality data. The system saves all of the raw line-of-sight data
as well, allowing subsequent post-processing to be performed if
The tip/tilt sensor can be used to level
the system, and is also logged for every ray that is collected and used
to correct the line of sight data.
