6/12/2002 - Intermec Technologies Corp. will supply Unisys Corp. with wireless handheld computers to record scoring at the 102nd U.S. Open golf championship, which begins here later this week at Bethpage State Park's renowned Black Course. Between 50 and 65 volunteers, working with Unisys and event organizers from the United States Golf Association (USGA), will use Intermec Model 710 wireless handheld computers to record and report each shot taken during the tournament. The portable computers will communicate scoring updates to the central scoring system over an Intermec wireless local area network (LAN) that covers the 7,214-yard course, the longest in U.S. Open history. Within seconds of each shot, the results will be posted by Unisys on the leader board and available to the gallery, Web surfers, officials, TV networks and other media.
