Wind monitoring system for a specified region: How should this be done, and with what?

I am unsure if this is the correct place to ask such a question I will give it a go.

So, the lab I work in is building a "drone park" to conduct robotics and controls experiments in. This drone park will be a netted enclosure where we will be flying drones around in and for analysis of these experiments I think it will be very useful to know what kinds of winds these robots experienced during flight. So with that, what would be a suitable setup and/or system we could purchase to adequately record this information in such away that we can say, "this drone experienced wind of this speed with a direction of theta degrees".

I am a robotics/controls guy and do not have too much practical knowledge of measuring wind. For example, can I get away with one sensor in the center measuring direction and speed and say that is relatively uniform over the whole drone park, or will I need a network of sensors? Should I use 3d sensors (I think so).

Overall, I would like a recommendation of what sensor(s) to get, how many, and what configuration.

Thanks

EDIT: Whatever the system is, I need to access raw data through a live feed.

EDIT: I'd like to also avoid placing this sensor on the drone as that is not the intended use for this.

• metoffice.gov.uk/weather/guides/observations/… - the top two instruments should suffice (anemomenter for speed, weather vane for direction). If you need data on gusts and turbulence, the instruments get both more complex and expensive.

• @Erik Thank you for your information, what can you tell me about these other instruments for gusts and turbulence? What kind of frequency may be required to measure these sudden changes in wind? Based on a quick look at some random ultrasonic anemometers, these seem to have sampling frequencies of less than 0.25 seconds, is that not sufficient? Jul 27 at 14:37
