Cambodia Weather Forecasting Capability; Install Weather Products in Caribbean; Assist NOAA Migrate New Data Services

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwire -01/24/12)- Global Science & Technology, Inc. (GST), a leading innovator of weather forecasting products, is proud to announce three major initiatives all related to the firms' successful weather forecasting technology.

Global Science & Technology to Modernize Cambodia Civil Aerometeorology

GST is assisting the Cambodia Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) with the modernization of its weather data information processing capability in support of aviation operations in that country.

"We're providing the WAFS-METLAB2 and BriefNet systems to Cambodia CAA at key facilities in country that will process aviation weather data, ultimately making the final information available as flight briefing products and other meteorological charts for aviation professionals," said GST Program Manager Paul Heppner.

Global Science & Technology Updates, Installs Systems in Caribbean

During 2011, GST developed an updated version of its popular DirectMet satellite reception system for Geostationary Orbital Environmental Satellite (GOES) imagery. The new DirectMet system operates on the Windows 7 Operating System, with an updated Graphical User Interface for user friendliness. A Windows 7 DirectMet system was installed in Curacao during 2011, and the two new systems are being installed during 2012 in Aruba and Barbados.

"DirectMet is a vital system for the tracking of hurricanes in the tropics," explained Heppner. "DirectMet includes hurricane analysis tools as part of the software package."

Global Science & Technology Assisting NOAA, Customers Migrate to New Data Services

"The International Satellite Communication System (ISCS) satellite broadcast is expected to terminate during 2012, at which time GST customers with METLAB workstations will need to switch to fileserver data access," Heppner said.

GST is working closely with NOAA to test communication interfaces, as well as prepare customers with software updates and transition. The ISCS is the primary way aviation meteorology data is communicated throughout the Americas, Atlantic, Caribbean, and Pacific. Many GST customers rely upon their METLAB workstations to process the ISCS data, then visualize the data into meaningful meteorological products that support their operations.

All weather products will be on display and demonstrated at the annual American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting being held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, 900 Convention Center Blvd., New Orleans, LA at booth 701 Tuesday, January 24 through Wednesday, January 25.
