Trimble IonoGuard

Solar activity peaks every 11 years – with the next maximum predicted in 2025. This has a direct impact on the stability of GNSS signals and can have a negative impact on precision.


As you travel farther north in latitude, like Alaska, we have seen projects that show good vertical precision, but elevation fluctuations throughout that day that exceed customer expectations. The repeatable accuracy suffers as you return to the same spot hours or days later and see a different elevation. Modern receivers with the ProPoint® GNSS Engine now have Trimble IonoGuard™ technology to mitigate these negative effects.

Utilizing a global network of GNSS stations, Trimble’s GNSS Planning Tool allows users to identify and plan around high ionospheric activity.

Trimble has taken further actions to ensure its customers GNSS accuracy and availability through the development of IonoGuard technology. An ongoing data collection campaign has provided GNSS and RF data to tune signal processing and RTK algorithms and deliver improved accuracy, availability and integrity. Diagnostic information indicating the real time level of ionosphere on each satellite together with historical data is presented in a user friendly graphical web interface.

IonoGuard technology in operation around the world has already shown significant improvements in positioning performance during the periods of high ionospheric activity. Users can feel confident that the superior performance of their ProPoint receivers has been further improved with the addition of IonoGuard ionospheric mitigation technology.

Accupoint Inc. Now a Part of Frontier Precision

BISMARCK, ND – Frontier Precision is excited to announce we have acquired Accupoint Inc. in Anchorage, AK. Accupoint has served the Alaska market for many years, first in the geospatial arena and most recently in the machine control market. “We want to take what Accupoint has built on the machine control side over these many years and combine that with our geospatial business in Alaska to truly offer all our customers there a ‘one-stop shop’ experience for geospatial, building construction, supplies, and machine control,” said Dennis Kemmesat, CEO of Frontier Precision.

“Alaska is a unique place to do business due to long days, short days, vast geography to cover, inclement weather, and many other circumstances that make it a challenging environment – we want to make sure that we can provide all the tools in one place for a customer to be successful no matter what the conditions are or where they are at,” said Kemmesat, “whether it is grade control going on a machine, drone technology for public safety, monitoring, mapping, surveying, lasers for simple building projects, or GNSS for high precision surveys – we now can provide the right and total solution to all the customers of Alaska – with support to back them up.”
