Official Press Release AXYS:

World’s first floating microwave radiometer complements measurements of the first floating LiDAR

AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) is pleased to announce that design work with Boulder Environmental Sciences & Technology (BEST) is underway to deploy the world’s first buoy based microwave profiling radiometer on a floating platform, the FLiDAR WindSentinel.

Funded by the United States Department of Energy, the BEST Marine Profiling Radiometer (MPR) is the world's first microwave profiling radiometer specifically designed for deployment on a buoy. Once completed, the system will enable users to measure vertical profiles of temperature and humidity within the atmospheric boundary layer and up to 10km above the floating platform, in addition to wind profiles up to 200m provided by the LiDAR. A microwave radiometer provides the most economical (with respect to cost, power... more
