Beginning in 1971, with the design, manufacturing and delivery of the WSR-74S systems to the US National Weather Service (NWS), Enterprise Electronics Corporation (EEC) has delivered over 140 S-Band weather radars around the globe. This represents the most of any dedicated manufacturer of commercial weather radar systems in the world. Although numerous advances in X- and specifically C-Band weather radar technologies and economics have made these types of systems somewhat more appealing, the demand for S-Band weather radars continues to expand, as do the technologies related to S-Band radar operations. EEC continues to design and manufacture new innovations to keep pace with mounting S-Band weather radar market demand for customers around the world.
