EECOM is an acronym for electrical, environmental and communications systems. The Apollo EECOM flight controller was responsible for the life support systems for the Command and Service Modules. Sy Liebergot’s autobiography gives us an insight into working at Mission Control as a flight controller during the Apollo Project including the famed Apollo 13 flight. The book also includes a bonus cd-rom with audio from Apollo 13 and 15.
