Company Profile

Trimble Navigation provides unchallenged world leadership in advanced positioning technology, including Global Positioning System (GPS), laser and other optical technologies. For more than 20 years, Trimble's innovative efforts to advance the science of GPS have made its name synonymous with technological leadership. By investing heavily in research and development – over $120 million in the last three years alone – Trimble has spearheaded the transformation of positioning technology into commercial and consumer solutions that have changed the way we work and live. With more than 700 issued U.S. and foreign patents, Trimble has been at the forefront of some of the most exciting and practical positioning technology applications of our time. Today, Trimble technology is advancing in-car navigation, synchronizing wireless networks, providing precision tools for complex land development projects and improving crop yields. Growing in the Millennium In July of 2000, Trimble acquired the Spectra Precision Group, a leading provider of positioning solutions for the construction, surveying and agricultural markets. Through the acquisition, Trimble gained significant resources in positioning technology complementary to GPS, including laser and other optical devices. In November of 2000, Trimble acquired Tripod Data Systems (TDS), a leading developer of data collection software and hardware for the land survey, construction and Geographic Information System (GIS) markets. Both acquisitions are part of Trimble's strategic mission to define and transform the way position-centric information is used. In April of 2001, Trimble established the Mobile Solutions Division to offer Telvisant™ Internet location-based services for the mobile workplace. The new capabilities allow Trimble to leverage its existing wireless business by offering complete end- to-end fleet management solutions as well as address the emerging market for location-enabled phones and mobile devices. Today, Trimble engineers world-wide are working on cutting-edge positioning applications that no one could even imagine just a few years ago. With more than 500 products, Trimble continues to lead the way in developing position-centric solutions to some of the world's most complex problems. By integrating GPS with wireless communication and information technology, Trimble technology can be found in cars, airplanes, construction equipment, farm machinery, laptop computers, personal digital assistants (PDAs) and more. Innovative applications include dispatching and tracking emergency vehicles, surveying and building roads, mapping earthquake damage, recording and synchronizing international financial transactions, and improving the efficiency of wireless communications and paging networks. Principal Markets Trimble is focused on several key markets, leveraging its technological leadership to meet the increasing demand for position-centric information in each area. Engineering and Construction Field Solutions Mobile Solutions Component Technologies Military and Advanced Systems Significant Alliances Trimble has developed significant strategic alliances in each market area. For some examples, Trimble`s relationships with Case New Holland, Caterpillar in mining and construction, Nortel in timing and Siemens VDO in automotive continue to increase Trimble`s presence in these fast-growing markets for GPS/positioning technologies. With these and many other alliances, Trimble capitalizes on technology innovations, association with key brands and broader distribution channels.
