    The remote sensing protocol (RSComPro) is a communication protocol which has been developed for controlling multiple remote sensing systems simultaneously through a UDP/IP and TPC/IP network. This protocol is meant to be open to the remote sensing community. The scope is the implementation of so-called wind scanners even with an heterogeneous set of devices. In this paper the main design characteristics of the protocol are presented. Moreover, experiences of two implementations based on long range lidars of type WLS200S are shown. Mainly, six systems of this type are being operated in two windscanner systems performing measurements for wind energy research, respectively by DTU Wind Energy and ForWind at University of Oldenburg. The first system has been used for synchronized measurements of three-dimensional wind speed at multiple points in the atmosphere at coastal sites of Denmark. … The second performs wind farm measurements at the offshore site alpha ventus. First experiences show high requirements on device and campaign setup for precise measurement of wind fields for wind energy energy research. Preliminary results of the first campaigns are shown.
