OmniStar - A Trimble Company

What is OmniStar Signal?

OmniSTAR is a world leader in providing high accuracy positioning data via satellite, and is at the forefront in the design and development of Differential GNSS (DGNSS) positioning technology.

Using over 100 reference stations, 6 high power satellites and 2 global network control centers, OmniSTAR delivers real-time and highly reliable positioning services for land and air applicaions worldwide, 24hrs a day 365 days a year.

Since 1994 OmniSTAR has been providing services to the agricultural industry. OmniSTAR provides a means to maximize agronomically and control some of the variability associated with crop production, allowing farmers to optimise yield, while minimising input costs.

Precision farming techniques can benefit all aspects of the crop production cycle from seedbed preparation through to harvest. The OmniSTAR range of services are extremely useful for:

  • Auto-steer machine guidance control
  • Ground and aerial variable rate applications
  • Tillage depth
  • Drilling rate
  • Soil samplling
  • Mapping and boundary marking
  • Used seasonally for harvesting, spreading, seeding and spraying


AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE!

OmniSTAR® HP

An OmniSTAR® service suitable for high-performance broadacre seeding, spraying, and harvesting applications in which the vehicle will be operating in areas with open views of the sky at all times. OmniSTAR HP requires a convergence period at startup.

  • Satelight Delivered
  • 2"-4" (5 - 10cm) Accuracy
  • *Standard Initialization / Convergence

OmniSTAR® XP

An OmniSTAR® service for high-performance broadacre spraying and land-tillage applications in which the vehicle will be operating in areas with open views of the sky at all times. OmniSTAR XP requires a convergence period at startup.

  • Satelight Delivered
  • 3"-5" (8 - 10cm) Accuracy
  • *Standard Initialization / Convergence

OmniSTAR® G2

An OmniSTAR® service offering both GPS and GLONASS satellite access, resulting in more reliable coverage time for users. OmniSTAR G2 requires a convergence period at startup and should be used in areas with open views of the sky at all times.

  • Satelight Delivered
  • 3"-5" (8 - 10cm) Accuracy
  • *Standard Initialization / Convergence
  • GLONASS Enabled Signal

OmniSTAR® VBS

With a very quick convergence time, OmniSTAR® VBS service provides performance suitable for agriculture applications in which accuracy and repeatability are not of the highest concern. It's most popular for broadacre crop spraying and tillage applications

  • Satelight Delivered
  • <1 meter Accuracy
  • <1 minute Initialization / Convergence

*Receiver convergence time varies based on GNSS constellation health, level of multipath, and proximity to obstructions such as large trees and buildings. In ideal conditions, receivers can converge to a 30cm position in approximately 10 minutes, 20cm in 15 minutes, 10cm in 30 minutes and full accuracy in less than 45 minutes.
