Fort Worth, TX — September 26, 2007— (TSX: HEM) Today, from the 2007 ION GNSS Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, Hemisphere GPS, a designer and manufacturer of advanced GPS products announced the latest addition to its innovative product line, Eclipse dual-frequency GPS receiver technology.
Based on Hemisphere GPS’ successful Crescent® L1 GPS technology that incorporates exclusive techniques for reducing code measurement noise and mitigating multipath signals, Eclipse delivers reliable centimeter-level accuracy. The superior performance and versatility of Hemisphere GPS’ Eclipse board allows OEM customers to integrate it into a wide variety of precise applications including navigation and GPS machine control. Depending upon the application, Eclipse users can record and post-process GPS data or choose from several differential solutions including Real-Time Kinematic (RTK), OmniSTAR® (HP/XP) and SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, etc.).
As an affordable dual-frequency solution, Eclipse receiver technology offers several other advantages to the OEM integrator including integrated L-Band tracking that powers down when not in use, multiple serial and USB ports, and upgradeable firmware.
“The versatility of Eclipse delivers exceptional value in a dual-frequency GPS module and makes it the perfect complement to our Crescent platform.” said Steven Koles, Hemisphere GPS President and CEO. “It allows us to continue to advance our existing product line as well as take advantage of great opportunities in new vertical markets.”
Eclipse receiver technology is currently available as an OEM module and evaluation kit. Hemisphere GPS will also integrate Eclipse into some of its existing GPS receiver products and plans to introduce a variety of new Eclipse-based products in 2008.
The latest Hemisphere GPS products will be on display at the ION GNSS in Fort Worth, Texas September 26th through September 28th in Booths 312 and 314.
