LIVERMORE, Calif. & CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, The Netherlands -- April 15, 2013

Topcon Positioning Group announces a new web portal – Sitelink3D.net –
designed specifically for general construction and engineering companies.

Using Bauma 2013, the world’s largest trade show aimed at the construction
market, as a backdrop for its announcement, Topcon focused on the web site’s
features, which include giving end-users an intuitive way to manage and
control every aspect of Topcon 3D machine control systems anywhere in the
world.

The subscription web-based service – accessed via computer, tablet or
smartphone – is a user-friendly, real-time visualization and communications
tool that allows users to access job site status and create new or update job
site parameters, and view movement of machines on the job.

Primary features and benefits of Sitelink3D include file transfers, messaging,
machine tracking, remote support and training, real-time cut/fill mapping and
acquiring and storing real-time survey data.

Richard Jackson, vice president of machine control applications, said, “While
Sitelink3D is a complete site communications systems providing data control,
machine tracking and a reporting system in one solution, Sitelink3D.net gives
complete site management power in real time and provides remote information
access to and from any piece of enabled equipment regardless of location.

“The web portal provides simple, effective tools for monitoring machine
efficiencies and site progress,” he said. Through Sitelink3D.net, “companies
can now better manage onsite progress, maintain data integrity, optimize
production and minimize downtime. The ability to be able to send and receive
job data and make instantaneous decisions or corrections saves time, fuel and
money,” Jackson said.

Most machines currently equipped with a Topcon 3D-MC system can be included in
the Sitelink3D network by simply adding the SL-100 radio modem. New Topcon
3D-MC systems can be ordered with the modem pre-installed. Users of Topcon
Pocket3D and 3D Office software can also be included in the Sitelink3D
network.
