The Sextant was primarily a nautical
device used by navigation officers (in conjunction with accurate tables, and a chronometer) to
precisely determine the ships' location. For over two hundred years, vessels far out to
sea, with no land reference, and coastal ships alike used it for plotting their location. Very
recently, the US Military's Global Positioning System of satellites (GPS), replaced the sextant.
GPS is built into everything from commercial airlines, and inter-state trucks, to golf carts
and Lap Tops - but the GPS transponder makes a rotten company logo.
The Sextant, as a symbol, is used by Musson International to indicate our observance of a centuries old maritime foundation in International transportation, and Freight Forwarding. Finally, the Sextant represents both a business principle and a fundamental truth that in order to safely reach a goal, the origin must first be known.
