FORT WORTH, TX, Sept. 26 /CNW/ - (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(R) 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(R) (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.
