Introducing the New ZephIR 300
Locker, I. and Woodward, A. (2010)
In 2005 ZephIR, the first wind lidar system for the wind industry, became commercially available founded on decades of lidar expertise within QinetiQ, a UK research and development laboratory.

March 2013 saw the tenth anniversary of the first commercial lidar deployment for wind energy applications – and while it is now commonplace to see wind lidars (such as ZephIR 300 and those that followed) in wind energy resource assessments, it was actually a turbine-mounted application for which the ZephIR technology was first deployed.
ZephIR wind resource measurement by laser anemometry
WindTech International (2007)
Laser anemometry was first developed in the 1970s using gas lasers, and until recently has been used primarily as a research tool. The ZephIR laser anemometer can be rapidly deployed, configured and redeployed, with both on-board data storage and wireless data transmission.
