Our History

Founded in 1975, Microcom has worked behind the scenes for over 40 years designing and manufacturing line-of-sight radio, satellite communications, data acquisition, and embedded microprocessor equipment that were sold under the brand names of some of the largest companies in their respective industries.

Microcom started its environmental monitoring efforts by designing and developing the Data Acquisition System for the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) Data Collection System (DCS) at NOAA’s Wallops Island Command and Data Acquisition Station and NOAA Satellite Operations Facility (NSOF).  Microcom continued to develop its product line to offer the industry superior data collection and acquisition technology. Under leadership from hydromet specialists, Microcom began providing environmental monitoring products and solutions for customers around the globe.
