GEORGE TOWN, GRAND CAYMAN, MARCH 12, 2018 – EEC’s TeleSpace division, in conjunction with our regional partner Aviation Communications Limited (AVCOM), continues its international dominance with this month’s competitive award of a 4.5m Capella-R GOES-16 (GOES-East) ground station. This system, coupled with EEC TeleSpace’s flagship visualization and analysis software, PROTEUS, will be installed in the next two months at the Cayman Islands National Weather Service Facility at the Owens Roberts Airport in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands.
The Cayman Islands National Weather Service (CINWS) is involved in a four-fold mission: monitoring; research; service provision and international cooperation. The new Capella-GR GOES-16 system will facilitate the continued fulfillment of CINWS’s core mission to observe, understand and predict the weather and climate of the Cayman Islands.
“We at EEC TeleSpace and AVCOM are delighted to supply the first GOES-16 ground station into the Caribbean at the Cayman Islands National Weather Service,” notes Eric Baptiste, EEC’s TeleSpace Business Manager and Errol Kellyman, AVCOM’s CEO. “Both EEC and AVCOM have a long tradition of serving National Weather Services. With our Capella-GR GOES-16 ground station in place, CINWS meteorologists will not only have an additional valuable tool they need to observe, collect, process and visualize data from GOES-16 but they will also be on the cutting edge of remote sensing technology.”
