This paper addresses a cardanic frame as mechanical-compensation device for a Doppler-wind lidar installed on a floating sea buoy as the “moving” lidar. From the methodological point of view, the horizontal wind speed (HWS) measured by both a reference lidar (i.e., “fixed”) and a floating lidar (i.e., “moving”) with and without a cardarnic frame is cross-examined by using standard statistical indicators and a compound pendulum model. Performance results are analysed both at laboratory level using a pitch/roll motion-simulation platform and at a sea-test measurement-campaign level some 250-m offshore Barcelona coast. Finally, simulations of the proposed pendulum-based model enables to tune-in and optimize cardanic-frame design parameters.
