Words from the CEO, Michael Baron

Michael Baron, CEO

Welcome to our website!

Weather affects our lives in very direct ways. You will find our systems in situations where weather information provides the capability for critical decision making.

Coastal Environmental Systems, Inc. is a leading global provider of weather monitoring systems to the aviation industry, the hazardous incident response market, military agencies, agricultural customers, and for industrial applications. The world’s most demanding buyers, like the US Air Force, US FAA, and NAV Canada, are some of our most satisfied customers.

For nearly 40 years, we have traveled globally to install and support our systems in remote and harsh environments — this includes places such as the South Pole and the Sahara Desert where we have equipment operating today. Through this experience, Coastal has become highly skilled at overcoming local infrastructure challenges that would impede others from installing a reliable system. This has been particularly important as the trend of airport infrastructure expansion and the need to meet international standards for air traffic control data — including weather data — continues to reach into new and demanding regions across our planet.

Coastal strives for long-term relationships with its customers, based on expert know-how, as well as a highly flexible, service-oriented approach to working with customers on solutions. This is possible because we build our own systems. The hardware engineering, software development, production, assembly, and testing of our products all take place at our facility in Seattle, Washington in the United States.

Importantly, our sensor technology remains cutting-edge because we source and integrate sensors from the best sensor makers, and specifically choose the best sensors for your situation. If you buy your entire system from a sensor manufacturer, then you will not have this advantage.

For our personnel, Coastal’s working environment embodies our openness, a collaborative approach to problem solving, and constant improvement in all our efforts. Experience has shown us this transparency and openness, both internally and externally, fosters the most meaningful exchanges of ideas, which have in turn led to the best opportunities for problem solving and improvement — all of which makes us the successful company we are today.

Coastal is pleased to offer extensive information to all parties with an interest in our company or in the field of expertise in which we excel. This website is just one way we can do this for you. We look forward to assisting you with your weather monitoring needs and thank you for your interest.
