LOUISVILLE, KY, Dec. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - (TSX:AJX) AgJunction, a leading provider of innovative hardware and software solutions for precision agriculture today announced the release of its latest aerial guidance product, the LiteStar III from Satloc ® at the National Agricultural Aviation Association Annual Convention in Louisville, KY.
With the introduction of the new LiteStar III guidance system for aerial applicators, Satloc has taken entry-level guidance to a new level of performance. As the next generation of affordable GPS guidance system, LiteStar III builds upon the features of the previous LiteStar II system, with even more attributes, including simplified navigation set-up and guidance options.
"LiteStar III continues to represent the high-value, low-cost solution for entry level aerial applicators," says T. J. Craig, Director of Sales for Satloc. "And now, the redesigned system features an all new ultra-bright L7 light bar that improves safety and minimizes fatigue."
The LiteStar series of aerial GPS systems have provided consistent market success for Satloc for more than a decade, accumulating a large installed base. "The new LiteStar III marks the beginning of a technology upgrade path for many of our customers," added Mr. Craig.
"One of the best features is the quick return on investment that operators can expect from the LiteStar III system," Craig concludes. "It's not only a low-cost reliable option for aircraft guidance, but the light bar provides the core information the operator needs for an aerial application, including on-swath indicators and spray on/off indicators."
The product is being showcased this week at Satloc booth #829 at the NAAA Annual Convention (http://www.agaviation.org/convention) and is currently available through Satloc dealers worldwide.
