A Wonderful Gathering of Friends and Associates at 8th MRC

The just concluded 8th Malaysian Road Conference (MRC) had been a wonderful event. It not only brought together all the friends and associates of the Malaysian Road Community, but also provide a forum to potential customers to explore new opportunities.

Our colleagues were there on 9th October to get the booth ready on the auspicious day (10.10.10) to welcome the guests. 
The dedicated lots, working hard on Saturday afternoon

Sorry to disappoint you, it was wrongly delivered to our booth
Look familiar? one person working, three others looking?
One of the first visitors
Crowd started to come in
"Yes, thats how we use the Navcom GPS!"
Smile ladies!
Please fill in the survey form and we will give you a surprise gift
Don't you think the technology is fantastic?
For the three-day event, we saw an encouraging turn out of visitors, and all of us were kept busy throughout.  Beside explaining our products and services, we also get the visitors involved by inviting them to answer a few questions on the items displayed in the booth.  In return, everyone get a copy of our "Highways and Expressway Poster".  Learning from our past years' experience, the poster soon became a hot item among the conference participants.  Our booth was really packed at times where we have to stay out of it to ease the jam.

The highlight of the event was the visit of the Deputy Minister of Public Work to our booth on the 12 October 2010.  Y.B. Dato' Yong Khoon Seng  made a brief stop at our booth and our Executive Director Mr Sunny Lee presented a frame-up version of the "Highway and Expressway Poster" to him, witnessed by other officials and the press.
The fruitful gathering came to a pleasant ending, and we are now looking forward to the next MRC.

Thanks to all the visitors, friends and associates, and of course not forgetting all the colleagues for their effort and support.

It's real: real time decimeter-level positions (x,y & z) is now within your reach

Above: Getting decimetre real-time positions (x,y and z),
even in the depths of the Borneo jungle

..It has revolutionized the way we worked, provide significant productivity gain and conveniences that we have not experienced before...

In July last year we announced the availability of Navcom's latest GNSS/GPS receiver SF3050 with build in StarFire capability. Subsequently we have brought in a total of 4 units of SF3050 to Malaysia before the end of 2009.

Half a year down the road, we are excited to report to you that the model has passed Malaysia's SIRIM approval test. In fact we have already used them in quite a number of projects in both Peninsular Malaysia and Sabah. It has revolutionized the way we worked, provide significant productivity gain and conveniences that we have not experienced before.

Imaging this:
1) Survey of hundreds of river cross sections over rivers and tributaries with combined length of of more than 1,000 km apart. (within a tight time frame of about 2 months)
2) To determine and verify potential flooding sites for a few environments/socially sensitive areas located deep inside the Borneo jungle. ( all within a few days, including jungle trekking and camping time)

Difficult tasks that can be a nightmare even to the most experienced project manager are now easily solved by the use of this wonderful technology, a modern GNSS receiver, connected to the state-of-the-art StarFire network, hence providing accurate x,y,and z readings anywhere and anytime in the world. There is no need to locate or connect to known points . There is no need for any post-processing computation! There is no risk of having to return to the test site because the first round of results were bad. What you see on site is what you get, the final result, all the time!

It is not difficult to think of its potential applications :
a) GIS /asset survey
b) DIY stock pile or volume survey (no professional surveyor is required)
c) Estate survey
d) Road/pipeline mapping
e) GCP survey
f) Verification survey
g) Setting out
h) Many more....

Beside being able to purchase this unit from us directly, you may also opt to rent it for your projects. Rental rate starts from a mere RM 200+ /day (May 2010)for a minimum rental period of a week.

For our Malaysian and Brunei customers: Our sale and technical support team is also available to meet you to brief you more about the system. We will also be more then happy to organize a free demo for your organization. Just contact us or email us mentioning your intended applications and current problem that you are facing.
