NavCom Introduces StarFire Rapid Recovery and Other New Features

TORRANCE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NavCom Technology, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Deere & Company (NYSE: DE  ) , announced the release of new software for its Sapphire-based receivers, including the SF-3050, SF-3040, and LAND-PAK. The multi-frequency GNSS (GPS+GLONASS) receivers are now capable of supporting NavCom’s new StarFire Rapid Recovery feature, which allows users to quickly regain StarFire accuracy after short GNSS signal blockages caused by shading, bridges or other similar constraints. Other new features include support for proprietary GLONASS RTK correction messages from third party base stations and a new web server interface for the SF-3050.

“The functionality and capabilities gained from these new features allow our customers improved productivity in the field,” said Steve Ault, NavCom’s Product Manager. “Previously, users would have to wait out the traditional 45 minute pull-in delay when they lost the GNSS signal, but now, StarFire Rapid Recovery helps users ride through short GNSS signal outages of up to three minutes and regains 5cm StarFire accuracy within two minutes after entering StarFire mode. Our customers are now up and running within five minutes with StarFire Rapid Recovery, thereby increasing 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 StarFire over IP (SFoIP) delivery for redundancy to ensure system availability and position accuracy.

StarFire Rapid Recovery and third party GLONASS RTK are options available via a software update for all current StarFire receivers offered by NavCom’s global dealer network.
