The StarFire 6000 Receiver
You can choose the accuracy you need, ranging from plus-or-minus 6 inches (good enough for many broad acre applications) down to sub-inch accuracy with RTK.

Signal Accuracy
Using our own StarFire network we can provide you with a reliable, accurate, and repeatable signal customized to your needs, delivering the accuracy and control you demand. Developed in 1998, the StarFire network was the world’s first Global Satellite-Based Augmentation System (GSBAS) capable of decimeter real-time accuracy.

Choose the level of accuracy that’s right for you.
