"Our newly improved Crescent V100 Series GPS Compass has tremendous
market potential as a replacement or augmentation for traditional fluxgate and
gyro compasses," stated Steven Koles, President and CEO of Hemisphere GPS.
"The fluxgate and gyro compass market is sizable, with over 30,000 units sold
annually, or about $60 million in sales. GPS compasses are being implemented
in naval applications in greater rates, as integrated bridges with central
consoles require accurate and reliable heading inputs for navigation and
autopilots. With Hemisphere GPS' proven ability to quickly develop and deliver
a variety of high-value GPS solutions, we are well positioned to take
advantage of this lucrative market."
