The RU COOL has continuously operated an L-Band satellite tracking antenna and data acquisition system since 1992, and a larger diameter X-Band antenna and system since 2003. Both systems provide real-time access to the full resolution direct-broadcast imagery from an international constellation of polar-orbiting satellites.

The geographic area within range of our reception capabilities extends from the Gulf of Maine to the Yucatan Peninsula, and encompasses the entirety of the Gulf of Mexico.
