ALBERTA, Canada — NovAtel, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division, introduced a new addition to their corrections portfolio. The new service, TerraStar-X, is available for use in precision agricultural applications across the Midwestern United States. TerraStar-X delivers RTK From the Sky performance by providing convergence in under one minute with 2 cm RMS accuracy and 99.9% uptime while reducing equipment needs and increasing productivity for end-users.

By combining global and regional correction technology with L-band delivery of data for precision agriculture applications, TerraStar-X provides users the precision and speed of traditional RTK networks without the need for base stations, saving growers time and money. The effectiveness of their RTK From the Sky technology has already been demonstrated across the U.S., and when combined with NovAtel's SMART7 antenna, TerraStar-X delivers speed, accuracy and reliability.

TerraStar-X is also available in the Midwest for use in other applications including construction, survey and ground truth systems, and subscriptions are available immediately. Learn more at
