Wind Turbine Siting and Radar Obstruction analysis
Accurate modeling of wind turbines and their interaction with defense, weather and air traffic control (ATC) radar systems is a vital component of the wind farm planning and siting process. Often, the impact of planned wind farms on radars is overlooked until too late, costing money and time on projects that get delayed. AGI is bringing its expertise to this problem in the form of a high-fidelity, web-based radar/wind interaction analysis tool being developed for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. AGI has a screening tool capability in its desktop product, available now.
