Trimble Signs Major USCG Contract

the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to provide 326 NT200CG GPS receivers for use in the USCG's Aids to Navigation (ATON) vessels. Differential GPS positioning information from Trimble's NT200CG will be used to place and maintain more than 50,000 buoys, day markers and lights throughout the U.S. coastal waters including Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico, the Great Lakes region, and inland navigable rivers. The NT200CG will also be used for general marine navigation. "We are pleased to have been chosen once again by the U.S. Coast Guard to provide GPS technology to help build and maintain the nation's transportation infrastructure," saidCharles Trimble, president of Trimble. Trimble's NT200CG allows USCG vessels to quickly and precisely position these navigational aides. The NT200CG is a custom unit based on Trimble's NT200D, a marine navigation receiver with built-in differential GPS, capable of receiving differential correction signals broadcast by the USCG's beacon system.
