A patented, onboard wind measurement sensor designed to revolutionize the wind industry.
Measuring up to first-class wind measurement instrument status, Windborne™ has demonstrated unparalleled scale and remarkable accuracy in measuring wind speed and direction.
It’s as accurate as the very best measurement instruments in the industry – but with a unique advantage: it can fly.
Don’t take our word for it, listen to the experts. Deutsche WindGuard (DWG), a globally renowned and accredited verification and validation body from Germany was tasked with verifying Windborne™.

The critical point of difference in comparison to a met mast or LiDAR is that Windborne™ is airborne.
It is able to always measure upwind, at all hub heights, and at tailored distances from WTGs. It can target specific wind bins and wind sectors and these all enable Windborne™ to performance test entire wind farms in a matter of days or weeks.
Alternative systems incur heavy logistical or physical limitations which allows for very few turbines to be tested annually.
Windborne™ is airborne and there in lies the big difference.
The airborne mobility enables measurement up wind, at hub height, at tailored distances from WTGs and critically within unwaked sectors. In addition Windborne can target specific wind bins and wind sectors.
All combined, this results in Windborne’s ability to performance test entire wind farms in a matter of weeks, while avoiding extensive logistics and expense.
