Homeland Security Technology, Inc. Delivers GPS Units to U.S. Marine Corps: "'1st LAR is the first unit to receive these GPS models equipped with Iraq street maps for use in armored vehicles,' commented CEO Jeffrey Powers. 'This model based on the Garmin GPSMAP 276C is specialty loaded with the Military Grid Reference System (MGRS) allowing the Marines to read military grid coordinates and military maps on the screen. Supplied with the GPS models are external antennas to facilitate installation in armored vehicles or Hummvees.' 1st LAR will be testing these units for a period of thirty days. 'We hope to follow this delivery with a major order allowing the Marines to place the units in every armored reconnaissance vehicle,' Powers added."
