Finland Awards Trimble Radiobeacon Contract

Trimble Navigation Ltd. announced it has been awarded a contract from the Finnish Board of Navigation (FBoN) to provide reference station and integrity monitors for the radiobeacon-based differential GPS (DGPS) marine navigation systems of Finland and Estonia. The FBoN will install Trimble's 4000MSK DGPS Reference Station and 4000IM MSK integrity monitors along the coasts of Finland and Estonia.

This brings to 14 the number of countries worldwide that have chosen Trimble's DGPS reference stations and integrity monitors for positioning and coastal navigation.

Countries such as Germany, Sweden, Brazil, Venezuela, Bermuda and Korea have made Trimble technology a country-wide standard for marine navigation and positioning. Trimble says the award of the contract came after exhaustive trials by the FBoN of many other DGPS systems. Trimble's radiobeacons broadcast DGPS data in the RICM SC-104 standard format, in full compliance with the specifications of the International Association of Lighthouse Authorities.

Trimble's DGPS reference stations and integrity monitors provide fully integrated systems for offshore differential GPS navigation and precise positioning. Each system includes a DGPS reference station.

Trimble's systems support multiple applications — from standard three to 16.4-ft (5-m) differential GPS accuracy for general navigation, to sub-meter precise positioning for offshore, coastal and waterway applications, as well as inland applications such as resource mapping and real-time land navigation.
