Hemisphere GPS announced the release of two very compact GPS compass products; the V102 all-in-one and the H102 OEM module. 

products are ideal where heading and positioning are needed for marine
and land-based applications such as yacht navigation, auto-pilot systems
and machine guidance for earthmoving machinery. 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.

on Hemisphere GPS’ successful Crescent Vector II GPS technology, V102
and H102 provide 0.75 degree heading accuracy while supporting NMEA 0183
communications format. In addition, H102 also supports NMEA 2000
communications format. The stable and maintenance-free design of V102
provides robust GPS positioning and heading and its small size that
allows for fast installation. Both V102 and H102 include the Crescent
Vector II GPS technology, two multipath resistant GPS antennas, a single
axis gyro, and two tilt sensors. With these integrated sensors, the
V102 also provides pitch, roll and heave measurements all on a single
board in conjunction with precise heading and 60 centimeter position
accuracy with differential corrections even while stationary.


and H102 are the culmination of 30 months of research and refinement to
the hugely successful Vector design to offer excellent performance,
in-band and out-of-band interference rejection, and a fast time to first
fix all with a short 27 centimeter baseline between antennas. Plus,
with Hemisphere GPS’ patented COAST technology, both products maintain
differentially-corrected positions for up to 40 minutes after loss of

and the H102 OEM board will be available starting in March 2011 through
the Hemisphere GPS Precision Products global dealer network.
