AGCO Corporation, a manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment solutions, is expanding its automatic guidance product offering to enable its customers using AGCO Auto-Guide and VarioGuide customers with NovAtel SMART6-L receivers to acquire TerraStar satellite correction signals for enhanced positioning performance.

The TerraStar-C and TerraStar-L correction services are subscription-based services that are delivered over satellite, utilizing a system of more than 80 GNSS reference stations to provide consistent accuracy worldwide. These correction services will maximize uptime and productivity by providing fast initialization to a reliable position, and instant re-convergence when the signal is lost. Providing decimeter accuracy levels through TerraStar-C of 5cm and submeter accuracy levels through TerraStar-L of 15cm pass to pass, customers can select the most appropriate service based on their specific growing operations.

AGCO’s partnership with NovAtel is a product of Fuse and its open approach to precision agriculture. Fuse focuses on helping customers optimize their farms through seamless technology integration and connectivity. TerraStar-L and TerraStar-C subscriptions will be available this summer through AGCO dealers.
