Pendulum Instruments Acquires Naviva GPS Signal Generators and Expands its

Product Portfolio

STOCKHOLM, Feb. 17 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Pendulum Instruments, a company of the Orolia Group (NYSE

Alternext Paris - FR0010501015 - ALORO), today announced the expansion of its

product portfolio with the addition of a one-channel, single frequency (L1)

GPS signal generator. This high-technology solution dedicated to complex

navigation applications and environments has been acquired from Naviva, a

Space Systems Finland (SSF) business unit, a leading provider of location

technologies. This GPS signal generator named "GSG-L1" will be integrated

with Pendulum's product range and sold under Pendulum brand name. Pendulum

instruments and Naviva will further collaborate to develop next-generation

GPS signal generators.

    Harald Kruger, CEO of Pendulum Instruments declared: "We have

strong ambitions and expectations in the growing Global Navigation Satellite

System test market. The expansion of our product portfolio is part of our

strategy to strengthen our position within the time and frequency test and

measurement area."

    Mika Jahkola, Managing Director of SSF underlined: "The

impressive Pendulum Instruments distribution channels will enhance the GSG-L1

sales potential worldwide by reaching most of the potential targeted

customers. The acquisition of such a product answers perfectly SSF and

Pendulum Instruments business opportunities."

    The financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

    The GSG-L1 is a very cost-efficient GPS signal generator for

production test or R&D purposes. GSG-L1 is for example suited for fast,

efficient and low-cost production line testing of mobile phones with

integrated GPS-receivers. Thanks to the very wide RF level range from -18 to

-175 dBm, the sensitivity of all types of GPS receivers can be verified with

a minimum of delay.

    In China, this instrument provided by Naviva is principally

used by car manufacturers for car navigation systems.


    Main product features:


    - Very accurate one-channel GPS signal generator

    - Ideal for GPS receiver production test purposes

    - Wide RF output power range enables both conducted and air-to-air 


    - Fully programmable with easy to use I/O protocol

    The GSG-L1 will be available for deliveries in March 2009
