For over four decades, Enterprise Electronics Corporation has built weather radar systems for meteorologists, both in the scientific community and for the broadcast community. With the marked improvements in signal processing capability, driven by dramatic leaps in the computer industry over the past 15 years, EEC has developed tailored applications (hardware and software) for many other markets, including aviation, military, oil & gas, hydrology and media/broadcast.
Severe weather can strike at any moment, but weather radars help improve effectiveness and efficiency in detecting these storms. That is why meteorology organizations around the globe, both research-focused and operational, use EEC Doppler weather radars as their benchmark tool. Data from EEC radars is used to predict, monitor and track threatening weather phenomena, such as lightning, thunderstorms, hail, blizzards and tornadoes. The result: more accurate storm predictions, earlier alerts and more saved lives!
Thunderstorms, wind shear, gust fronts, lightning, microbursts, heavy snow; any of these can bring an aviation operation to a standstill. EEC weather radar systems aid aviation institutions in not only detecting and monitoring hazardous weather, but also in improving terminal and en-route forecasting. From large international airports to small private aviation airfields, EEC radars are the linchpin to enhanced aviation weather decision support – protecting people and assets.
Weather and weather information can be a harsh enemy in military operations. EEC Doppler weather radars help turn that enemy into a powerful ally. May it be supporting troops on the ground, sailors on the sea, or airmen in the sky, EEC radar systems allow military leaders to make the right decisions to capitalize on weather information. Maximize your military advantage using timely and accurate weather information – all from EEC radars.
Oil & Gas
As oil & gas exploration continues to expand around the globe, the need for shipboard and platform-based weather radar systems becomes more and more critical. EEC's compact and affordable X-Band radars are the perfect fit for offshore weather support. From monitoring approaching storm fronts to forecasting weather for transient helicopter and ship operations, EEC radars are the perfect solution for maximizing oil & gas operational productivity, while minimizing risk to people and assets.
Water is becoming the world's most valuable assets, even more so then oil. Hydrologists and hydro-met agencies around the world use EEC Doppler weather radars to monitor accumulated rainfall, sub-catchment basins and provide flood warnings and prediction. From the rainforests in Brazil to the locks of the Panama Canal – EEC radars lead the way for hydrology applications.
Weather phenomena impact each media market in a unique way. Television stations have a specific duty to not only forecast weather, but also visualize and warn on impending severe weather conditions. EEC radar systems ensure that every television station can provide the most timely, up to date weather information and alerts to their audience - 24/7/365.
EEC has also exclusively teamed with The Weather Company (TWC), and IBM Business to provide compete, end-to-end weather radar and on-air display systems for the media market. With TWC's industry-leading Max on-air software, combined with EEC's best-on-the-market weather radars, the TWC + EEC team provide media customers with the best, most advanced tools available to protect people and assets.
