HANOVER, Germany -- October 09, 2012

NavCom Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company
(NYSE:DE), announced a new feature for its GNSS receivers, StarFire Over IP.
This new feature allows users to access StarFire corrections over the
Internet, giving them access to the same reliable five centimeter global
positioning accuracy without the need for a base station.

“The ability to access StarFire corrections over the internet provides our
customers an added layer of reliability,“ said Steve Ault, NavCom’s Product
Manager. “In addition to the nearly 100% uptime of our redundant satellite
communications network, users are now also able to access StarFire corrections
even in those situations when satellite delivery might be unavailable, such as
deep urban canyons or very high latitude locations. Furthermore, the automatic
failover capabilities in our StarFire enabled products allow the user to
switch seamlessly from satellite to internet delivery of StarFire service and
thereby maintain the maximum possible uptime.”

NavCom’s StarFire Network, a Global Satellite Based Augmentation System,
provides five centimeter horizontal accuracy worldwide and the freedom and
flexibility that a DGPS solution offers. It offers 99.999% uptime, a seven
satellite constellation, and now internet delivery for redundancy to ensure
system availability and position accuracy.

StarFire Over IP is an option available in November via a software update for
all current StarFire receivers offered by NavCom’s global dealer network. For

Sales team at +1 (310) 381-2000 or Or stop by NavCom’s
booth at the INTERGEO tradeshow in Hanover, Germany, Hall 9, Booth H.64.
