Hemisphere GPS announced the availability of Satloc Bantam, a mid-level GPS guidance solution targeted at two markets; a growing customer segment seeking specific high-end features in a lower priced platform and the niche market of small agricultural aircraft and helicopters. Satloc Bantam has been modeled after Hemisphere GPS' popular M3 guidance system — the most widely used GPS guidance system in aerial application. It compliments Hemisphere GPS' high-end IntelliStar system and the entry-level LiteStar II system to give customers a full range of guidance product choices in aerial application.

Hemisphere GPS also introduced background maps, the first software mapping application for use in the aerial application market. The IntelliStar aerial application guidance system with background maps enhances flight navigation and confidence by allowing aerial applicators to view their current flight information such as spray lines, waypoints, and polygons overlaid on pre-existing maps.
