Earlier in 2016, one of the nations major media outlets embarked on an aggressive, new campaign to advance TV weather technology to a whole new level. As part of this project, Enterprise Electronics Corporation (EEC) developed and deployed a network of two new types of technologies, both a first of their kind in the media weather industry. The new EEC Defender SK1000H High-Frequency (3.5-3.6 GHz) Dual-Polarization S-Band Doppler Weather Radars, as well as the fleet of EEC Ranger-X5 Dual-Polarization Solid-State X-Band Doppler Weather Radars (deployed under the Storm Ranger program) have changed the way TV stations gather and disseminate life-saving weather information. Using critical, time-sensitive information captured by these new systems, TV stations in some of the US’s largest population centers are now able to better arm not only their on-air meteorologists, but also local entities, such as emergency managers, first responders, government officials, and public businesses. These efforts further the goal of building a Weather-Ready Nation and transforming weather operations in the media sector to help America respond.
