NavCom Introduces StarFire Over IP at the INTERGEO Tradeshow

"The ability to access StarFire corrections over the internet provides our customers an added layer of reliability"


INTERGEO 2012

HANOVER, Germany--NavCom Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company (NYSE:DE), announced a new feature for its GNSS receivers, StarFire Over IP. This new feature allows users to access StarFire corrections over the Internet, giving them access to the same reliable five centimeter global positioning accuracy without the need for a base station.

"The ability to access StarFire corrections over the internet provides our customers an added layer of reliability," said Steve Ault, NavCom's Product Manager. "In addition to the nearly 100% uptime of our redundant satellite communications network, users are now also able to access StarFire corrections even in those situations when satellite delivery might be unavailable, such as deep urban canyons or very high latitude locations. Furthermore, the automatic failover capabilities in our StarFire enabled products allow the user to switch seamlessly from satellite to internet delivery of StarFire service and thereby maintain the maximum possible uptime."

NavCom's StarFire Network, a Global Satellite Based Augmentation System, provides five centimeter horizontal accuracy worldwide and the freedom and flexibility that a DGPS solution offers. It offers 99.999% uptime, a seven satellite constellation, and now internet delivery for redundancy to ensure system availability and position accuracy.

StarFire Over IP is an option available in November via a software update for all current StarFire receivers offered by NavCom's global dealer network.
