      AGCO Corporation announced it is expanding its automatic guidance product offering. AGCO Auto-Guide and VarioGuide customers using the NovAtel SMART6-L receivers can now acquire TerraStar satellite correction signals to enhance positioning performance.

      The TerraStar-C and TerraStar-L correction services are subscription-based services delivered over satellite, using a system of more than 80 Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) stations to provide consistent accuracy worldwide. According to AGCO, 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 promises to focus 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.
