Earthworks Business and Earthworks X200 Machine Guidance - 26/03/2010

The Earthworks X200 excavator machine guidance system is Hemisphere GPS' first construction solution targeted at improving operator accuracy, simplifying machine operations and reducing the amount of excavation rework. Hemisphere also has initiated the Earthworks Business Unit that designs and manufactures products for the construction market.

Hemisphere GPS' Earthworks X200 excavator machine guidance system is designed for easy installation and can be used by operators of all skill levels. By using X200, excavator contractors can significantly reduce their input costs and ultimately become more competitive in bidding on new contracts.

The Earthworks product line is focused on machine guidance and control of earth-moving machinery. Hemisphere GPS has adapted its proven technology and applications currently used in agriculture, aerial application, marine and survey markets to meet the needs of the construction industry.

Finally, in support of the Earthworks business segment, Hemisphere GPS and Prolec Ltd. have agreed to a strategic alliance. Prolec Ltd. is a leader in machine guidance, safety and on-board weighing technology for the construction, road and rail industries. The two companies are collaborating on integrated systems incorporating their respective technologies.

Hemisphere GPS is in the process of signing Earthworks distribution agreements in the US and Canada and is currently expanding its dealer network and its Earthworks product portfolio by offering complementary excavator and blade solutions throughout 2010.
