RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL, Aug. 11 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) Today,
from the Navalshore exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Hemisphere GPS
announces the supply of its LV101 GPS compass to TECHNOMASTER.
TECHNOMASTER, a marine electronics engineering firm based in Sao
Leopoldo, Brazil, integrated Hemisphere GPS' new LV101 GPS compass into
a state-of-the-art marine navigation auto-pilot system. The LV101 GPS
compass is paired with TECHNOMASTER's exclusive navigation technology to
create an auto-pilot system suitable for large vessels and small
"The LV101's ability to provide our auto-pilot system with accurate and
reliable heading as well as sub-meter positioning make it an integral
component of our solution," says Edilar Predabon, Director of
Engineering at TECHNOMASTER. "We find that its unique all-in-one design
allows for simple installation into our custom auto-pilot applications."
The LV101 GPS Compass is powered by Hemisphere GPS patented Crescent®
Vector™ technology and integrates two GPS antennas, a
NMEA 2000® communication processor, a single-axis gyro,
two tilt sensors, and a power supply into a single OEM board package.
The GPS based compass is a viable alternative to traditional gyro and
fluxgate compass sensors as it is immune to magnetic interference
typically present on marine vessels.
"We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with TECHNOMASTER and
their new auto-pilot system," says Phil Gabriel, Vice President and
General Manager of Precision Products at Hemisphere GPS. "TECHNOMASTER
is an extremely innovative company and we are proud they chose to
integrate our technology into their latest system."
TECHNOMASTER's auto-pilot system is now available for purchase and is
currently being displayed at Navalshore 2010 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
from August 11-13, 2010. For more information on Hemisphere GPS and the
