Hemisphere GPS announced the supply of its Crescent GPS technology and components to TechGeo, an innovative company that was the first to manufacture geodetic GPS receivers in Brazil.

TechGeo, a leading manufacturer of geodetic GPS solutions based in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, integrated Hemisphere GPS’ proven Crescent GPS engine into a feature-packed smart antenna product, named Zênite. The portable all-in-one GPS receiver combines the Crescent GPS board with a high performance GPS antenna, Bluetooth communication, internal memory, tilt sensors, battery and more. The automated data recording and other unique features of Zênite make it simple to set up and operate for precise land surveying and mapping applications. 

“The performance and reliability of Crescent GPS made it a perfect match for Zênite, our new generation of smart antenna,” said Marcos Stenner, general director at TechGeo. “Our customers will appreciate the combination of accuracy, portability and ease of use for their positioning applications.”

With over 100,000 boards sold, Hemisphere GPS’ Crescent GPS board provides sub-meter differential GPS positioning and measurements that can be processed to centimeter-level accuracy. TechGeo offers packages with multiple Zênite receivers and post-processing software to provide the ultimate value to surveyors that are establishing survey control points or creating precise maps.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with TechGeo and their new GPS smart antenna product,” says Phil Gabriel, vice president and general manager of Precision Products at Hemisphere GPS. “TechGeo has an excellent reputation among Brazilian GPS customers and we are proud they chose to integrate our technology into their latest product. Brazil is a fast growing market for Hemisphere GPS overall as we are projecting a 3 fold increase in Brazilian revenues this year.”
