LOGAN, UTAH — In a 2016 acquisition, Campbell Scientific and Coastal Environmental Systems came together as one company. During decades of independent operation, each has proven their commitment to a common set of principles that include:
On the foundation of these shared principles and after years of close partnership, Campbell Scientific and Coastal Environmental Systems are uniting to deliver greater value to more clients around the world.
Coastal Environmental Systems
Since its creation in 1981, Coastal Environmental Systems has built a strong organization that supplies weather data in mission-critical applications, such as aviation weather, hazardous materials, transportation, and military. Because of its commitment to safety via environmental observations, Coastal is trusted by professionals in aviation, military, and emergency response.
Coastal is adept at implementing large, complex projects that include custom system and software design, installation, and operation according to detailed client specifications. Coastal developed the popular WEATHERPAK® series of compact, rugged, portable weather stations. Today, its equipment is used in over 1,200 installations worldwide.
Campbell Scientific was founded in 1974 by brothers Eric and Evan Campbell. Together, they developed a space averaging laser anemometer for the U.S. Army, followed by the CR5 Digital Recorder—the first digital data logger capable of operating in an unattended field environment.
Since then, Campbell Scientific has manufactured over three hundred thousand data loggers. The brand is recognized for quality and capability in a wide range of environmental and infrastructure communities. Through an ecosystem of sensors, data loggers, communication devices, and software, Campbell Scientific has built a strong network of global partners to offer complete data acquisition systems for various applications.
Today, Campbell Scientific operates an extensive manufacturing facility with custom system design and assembly. The production team operates alongside our engineers, allowing us to carefully control quality.
