From Space to Field: Exploring the Possibilities of GNSS Stations in Precision Agriculture

What Is GNSS Station?

A GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) station is an earth-based facility that receives signals from navigation satellite systems, such as GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou. These GNSS stations are equipped with specialized antennas and receivers to continuously track and record signals from multiple satellite constellations. They help in collecting and processing data related to satellite positioning, timing, and navigation.

In recent years, the number of GNSS stations around the world has increased significantly, leading to improved positioning accuracy and more reliable navigation services for a wide range of industries, such as transportation, agriculture, and emergency response.

How GNSS Station Benefits Precision Agriculture?

GNSS stations can greatly benefit precision agriculture in various ways, ultimately increasing efficiency, productivity, and sustainability. 

Precise Positioning

GNSS stations enable accurate positioning by receiving signals from multiple satellite systems, providing real-time data on the location and movement of agricultural machinery and equipment. This allows for precise machine control, path optimization, and reduced overlaps or gaps during field operations.

Autosteering and Guidance Systems

GNSS stations allow for the development of autosteering and guidance systems in agricultural machinery, ensuring consistent row spacing, reducing human error, and improving overall field efficiency. Fieldworkers can then focus on monitoring and managing other aspects of farm operations.

Yield Monitoring and Mapping

The data collected from GNSS stations can be used to create detailed yield maps, helping farmers identify patterns and variations in crop performance. This information can then be used to make informed decisions regarding crop management and resource allocation.

Introducing FJD N20 Fixed High Power GNSS Station

The FJD N20 is a highly precise GNSS receiver capable of supporting multi-satellite and multi-frequency tracking, delivering centimeter-level RTK positioning accuracy. Based on the Linux platform and high-power radio, it covers a wide range of up to 30km in ideal conditions and is extensively compatible with various devices.

Multi-satellite & Multi-frequency

The FJD N20 is an ideal choice for farmers, providing full support for a range of systems and frequency points, including BDS, GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS. It is designed to withstand even the toughest environmental conditions and offers high accuracy and stable performance.

Wide Signal Coverage

The N20 is equipped with a powerful high radio that supports a maximum working radius of up to 30km. Additionally, it features high, medium, and low power settings, which can be switched easily to accommodate different distance requirements. This wide range of working scope makes the N20 ideal for use in a variety of applications, including surveying, mapping, and navigation in both urban and rural environments. Whether you need to cover long distances or operate in challenging terrain, the N20 delivers the performance and reliability you need to get the job done right.

Simple Interaction, Easy Configuration:

The N20 is designed with ease of use in mind and comes equipped with a Wi-Fi hotspot connection function that allows users to access the web interface to configure the receiver and the radio. Additionally, users can enter base station coordinates manually or obtain them automatically if they are unknown, allowing for increased accuracy and efficiency in the field. It also saves historical coordinates of base stations for later reuse, further streamlining the setup process.

The Best Partner for Your Auto Steer System

Paired with the N20 GNSS Station, FJD auto steer series such as the FJD AT1 Autosteering Kit and AT2 Auto Steer System, can help farmers optimize planting and harvesting operations, ensuring proper seed placement, row spacing, and crop density, resulting in higher yields and better crop quality.

By offering these benefits, GNSS stations play a crucial role in the advancement of precision agriculture, supporting more efficient, sustainable, and profitable farming practices.
