Leico Employee Honored By Institute Of Navigation

Thomas A. Stansell, Jr., of the Leica GPS division, has been awarded the Weems Award by the Institute of Navigation (ION) in Alexandria, Va. The award is given out annually in recognition of continuing contributions to the art and science of navigation. As director of Advanced Programs with Leica GPS, Mr. Stansell is the team leader of the computeraided earth moving program (CAEM), in which Leica is collaborating with Caterpillar and Spectra-Physics under the President's Technology Reinvestment Program (TRP). Prior to Leica's purchase of the company's commercial GPS business group in 1994, Mr. Stansell spent 25 years with Magnavox, and reportedly was responsible for starting the offshore oil survey integrated navigation and systems business, and for developing a long series of successful Transit and Omega navigation and survey instruments. He also headed the teams which developed Magnvox's all-digital GPS receiver technology. Based in Torrance, Calif., Leica's GPS group designs, manufactures and markets professional products using GPS for marine and landbased applications.
