What is RTK?
Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) is a technique used to enhance the precision of position data derived from satellite-based positioning systems (global navigation satellite systems, GNSS) such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, NavIC and BeiDou.
Midwest Machinery has invested in a robust network of RTK towers covering much of Minnesota. Midwest Machinery owns, maintains and supports the system, which lowers the investment cost for growers. RTK utilizes a local, ground-based reference station that transmits the high-accuracy, 1-inch corrections to a machine StarFire receiver via RTK radios. Due to the proximity of the base station to the machine, all satellite drift is eliminated, and the position is repeatable.
An annual subscription to Midwest Machinery's RTK Network is required to gain access. Contact your nearest Midwest Machinery for details.
