Torrance, CA - March 21, 2006 - NavCom Technology Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company, announced the introduction of the newly enhanced VueStar aerial survey solution combining its new StarPac utility software that facilitates better integration into pre-existing workflows.

VueStar's complete global navigation system is configured specifically for all aerial survey applications and utilizes the global satellite-based StarFire Network to provide precise positioning worldwide without the need for RTK base stations or GPS post processing. This new system introduces three significant enhancements: improved GPS signal processing, StarPac Mission software and the optional Event Latch Interface.

The new 12-channel, dual-frequency GPS receiver computes real-time positions at up to 25 times a second, re-acquires GPS signals faster, and includes improved troposphere modeling, which better compensates for changes in altitude.

Providing both pre-mission and post-mission processing, the new StarPac mission software provides critical tools for mission planning, as well as RINEX conversion, datum conversion, trajectory plotting and output of position data in a number of formats, along with a quality/figure of merit for each position.

And, the optional Event Latch Interface conditions the event signal, allowing VueStar to operate successfully with a variety of cameras and airborne sensors. This self-powered module also contains internal de-bounce circuitry to ensure proper event timing.

"The enhanced VueStar system works with more sensors, has increased performance and now includes the StarPac mission software allowing seamless integration with the existing work flow process," said Steve Wilson, NavCom's GPS Business Manager. "StarFire works anywhere, any time without the need for ground based reference stations."

Pricing and Availability

The VueStar System includes a GPS receiver, aircraft antenna, a one-year global StarFire license, the StarPac mission software, and all necessary cables and documentation. It's priced at $15,995 and is currently shipping.
