Ag Leader’s ParaDyme® Automated Steering System Gains Ability to Receive GLONASS Signals

by Jan 31, 2011Guidance & Steering, News & Announcements

Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions, will provide availability of GLONASS support for the ParaDyme automated steering system in February, enabling the rover to receive signals from the satellites that comprise the Russian global navigation satellite system.

“The main advantage GLONASS capability will offer ParaDyme users is longer run-time without losing signal due to coverage interruptions or low GPS satellite availability,” says GPS and Guidance Product Manager, Matt Leinen. “This feature will be especially beneficial to our growers that often lose satellite signal due to tree lines or other field obstacles; additional satellite availability will help them maintain a GNSS signal and keep running.” GLONASS support is the latest functionality added to the ParaDyme automated steering system.

The ParaDyme can be controlled through the Ag Leader® Integra or Versa displays, and features remote service and the ability to receive RTK differential correction signals via cellular network. The ParaDyme automated steering system benefits include sub-inch accuracy, increased fuel efficiency, reduced operator fatigue and more.
