Hemisphere GPS Announces V102 and H102 Compact GPS Compass Products

Calgary, Alberta — February 7, 2011 — (TSX: HEM) Today, Hemisphere GPS announced the release of two very compact GPS compass products; the Hemisphere GPS V102 all-in-one and the Hemisphere GPS H102 OEM module. These products are ideal where heading and positioning are needed for marine and land-based applications such as yacht navigation, auto-pilot and machine guidance for earthmoving machinery. The Hemisphere V102 is the market's smallest, single-enclosure GPS compass and positioning system, while the H102 OEM board, found in the V102, is the market's smallest fully integrated single board GPS compass that provides a low-cost yet highly accurate solution for integrators.

Based on Hemisphere GPS' successful Crescent Vector II technology, V102 and H102 provide 0.75 degree heading accuracy while supporting the NMEA 0183 communications format. In addition, H102 supports the NMEA 2000 standardized data communication bus. The stable and maintenance-free design of V102 provides robus GPS positioning and heading and its small size allows users to easily mount the unit and get up and running quickly. Both V102 and H102 include the Crescent Vector II GPS receiver, two GPS antennas, a single axis gyro,and two tilt sensors providing pitch, roll and heave measurements all on a single board to provide precise heading and better than sub-meter position accuracy even while stationary.

"The addition of V102 and H102 expands our GPS compass product lineup to meet new lower price points making our patented technology accessible for nearly every situation," says Phil Gabriel, VP and General Manager, Precision Products, for Hemisphere GPS. "Both marine and land-based users now have a very accurate yet low-cost GPS compass option."

V102 and H102 offer excellent in-band and out-of-band interference rejection and a fast time to first fix. Plus, with Hemisphere GPS’ patented COAST™ technology, both products maintain differentially-corrected positions for upto 40 minutes after loss of signal.

The Henisphere GPS V102 and the Hemisphere GPS H102 OEM board will be available starting in March 2011.
