JOHN DEERE AMS introduces two new precision guidance products in time for the 2010 planting season: iSteer, an active implement guidance system, and a new StarFire 450 RTK radio system for enhanced RTK signal coverage.

The iSteer system increases repeatability and accuracy of the implement in straight-track applications. It is designed for growers who want increased accuracy at the point where seed, fertilizer or other inputs enter the ground. An implement receiver and hydraulic implement steering system enable the implement to automatically correct its position in the field independently of the tractor's A/B line position. The system is completely integrated with approved John Deere tractors and requires a StarFire iTC RTK system to operate. Circle 155.

The new StarFire 450 RTK radio is designed to work on a vehicle or as a base station to increase RTK signal coverage and maintain operational accuracy in areas with rolling terrain and/or in dense foliage conditions. This lower-frequency radio can reduce overall RTK network costs. It can be used in conjunction with existing base stations that have the 900-MHz systems for improved RTK performance. Circle 156.
