Torrance, CA - August 23, 2004 - NavCom Technology, a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company (NYSE:DE), announced today the addition of the new SR-7120 to its existing line of Safari Networks, which includes the SR-7100 model. The new SR-7120 provides a robust and cost-effective solution for remote work environments by creating a mobile, license-free wireless broadband data network. The Safari Network is based on a Cellular architecture, with each cell covering a radius of 15 miles. Additional cells are easily added to extend coverage with no effect on the overall network throughput. The network is easy to set-up, configure and manage intuitively from a single location by non-technical personnel. Ruggedized and watertight, the SR-7120 can be mounted in harsh environment conditions giving users greater flexibility. Applications for the SR-7100 and SR-7120 include machine control, fleet management, farming, rural area communications, marine communications and construction site management.

"The ability to use these multiple services allows room for business growth and change.
