Formerly known as Trimble® RTK, Trimble CenterPoint™ RTK is perfect for farms within 8 miles of an established RTK base station or base station network, without line-of-sight obstructions such hilly terrain or an abundance of trees. CenterPoint RTK is well suited for row-crop planting, strip tilling, land leveling and other water management applications in which the best horizontal and vertical accuracy is required.
Trimble pioneered RTK in the early 1990s as a means of delivering high accuracy corrections for field applications. In the two decades since, RTK has become the industry leading methodology for sub-inch positioning. Traditional RTK uses radio communications to provide corrections. When using RTK with radio communications, you need access to a base station located within a eight-mile radius (approximately) from your farm. An RTK base station sends corrections via a radio transmitter to a mobile receiver attached to your vehicle.
Base stations can be purchased for individual farming operations, or utilized through a subscription service from an established network. Subscription services are often operated by precision agriculture equipment dealers, such as Trimble dealers, that have erected single or multiple stations within a network area. RTK networks are being added throughout the world at a rapid pace, so RTK coverage is improving all the time. CenterPoint RTK networks currently cover over 500 million acres of farmland in the United States, and over one billion acres worldwide.
