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.”
