Leica Geosystems and TeeJet Technologies have embarked on a partnership in which TeeJet will distribute Leica’s No-Drift mojoRTK auto-steer system under its own label, adding RTK-accuracy guidance to TeeJet’s suite of precision agriculture products.

Under the same agreement Leica will capitalize on TeeJet Technologies’ range of vehicle-specific assisted steering kits to increase the number of tractors the mojoRTK can steer, the companies said. The list of kits offered by TeeJet currently tops more than 50 individual kits, designed to fit approximately 150 individual vehicle models. Initially, Leica will offer TeeJet vehicle kits through its network of resellers, according to the company.

The companies also plan to work together to develop additional products for the agriculture market.

Leica’s Virtual Wrench technology, which provides remote service and support, will also be expanded to support products for both companies, allowing technicians from both companies to provide customers with on-demand service and support, according to the companies.
