Pexx Chosen to Manage a Tower and Installation Project of a Severe Weather Radar

Pexx was chosen for this project because of its vast project management experience, telecommunications and RF technology expertise, coupled with a long history of reliability and superior customer service demonstrated by the company. Pexx project management services include tower construction, installation and integration of the communications and electronics packages of a new state-of-the-art weather radar system. This unique system is as part of a collaborative agreement with Oklahoma University (OU) to research and implement advanced weather-predicting techniques. Collocated on the OU campus, NOAA Weather Partners unites with EEC and OU in their focus in their focus on severe weather and this project that will aid in the rapid transfer of knowledge from research into technology, training and improved forecasts and warnings nationwide.

Jennifer Greene, Pexx President, says, "installation of the severe weather radar at OU at Norman adds a new dimension to our full service package." Pexx has completed Phase I of this project with the completion of the tower foundation. The foundation, secured with over 360-tons of concrete and steel, will hold a 62-foot tower and a 41-foot globe shaped radome that will house and protect the state-of-the-art weather radar and electronic packages from severe weather.

The advanced detection system will provide forecasters the opportunity to issue earlier tornado warnings with a higher level of reliability than existing systems. The aim of the whole collaboration between OU and EEC is to improve weather detection and prediction to reduce the negative impact of severe weather. Greene says, "Pexx is proud to be part of such an important project that will not only benefit OU students, but will ultimately save lives as researchers gain information that will enable them to give earlier detection of tornadoes reducing the amount of devastation."

Pexx is preparing to begin Phase II of this project. During this phase Pexx will be erecting the supporting tower superstructure, and installing and integrating electronic packages including a phased array doppler, and the 41-foot radome.
