Hey there

Some months ago I read about a little gadget that was being mounted on windmills, a laserdevice, that could meassure windspeeds a couple of hundreds of meter in front of the mill, and adjust the angle of the blades accordingly. Do any of you people know anything about such a device ( the laserthingy ), please supply links to suppliers and/or producers... Thank you in advance.

Best regards

Thomas Hansen

It would be great for detecting windshear ahead of airplanes. A similar laser is used for correcting "seeing" (twinkling stars) through air for feedback to terrestrial flexible telescopes.
