Back to Basics

LiteStar IV™ is Satloc’s entry-level guidance system for aerial applicators. The LiteStar IV™ system includes the Satloc L7 Lightbar, LiteStar IV™ controller, A21 antenna and associated cables. LiteStar IV™ provides guidance in flying and spraying your field. Select a pattern to fly along with other setup options and LiteStar IV™ guides you along each row (or swath) in your pattern. Record data such as spray on/off locations, precise time/date record, flight speed, altitude, pattern flown and GPS position quality then export to a USB drive for analysis and review in supporting software such as MapStar®. Minimize fatigue and improve safety with the ultra-bright L7 lightbar. The intuitive LiteStar IV™ controller will simplify and improve all types of spraying applications.
