Telemetry Research

Need something special? Designing telemetry equipment requires a delicate balance between power, weight, and capabilities. Thanks to Cellular Tracking Technologies' investments in telemetry R&D, we provide the most data with the fewest compromises in the right format for your species.

GSM Cellular, Argos Satellite, and Radio

Collecting the world's most advanced telemetry data wouldn't be very useful if you couldn't retrieve your data reliably! Our transmitters send your data over GSM cellular towers, Argos satellites, and UHF radio receivers. What sets our trackers apart is the ability to put 1, 2, or all 3 of these communications platforms on our trackers.

GPS, Accelerometry, Inertial Measurements, and More

The telemetry data you analyze is only as good as the sensors collecting the data. We have years of experience connecting sensors with the precisely tuned software necessary to maximize the quality of your data.

Cloud Portal

Easily manage your trackers, analyze your data, and visualize movement in our cloud portal. Make decisions for your data collection, export to MoveBank, download data, see your animals' movement and activity, and perform administrative tasks.

The future of small trackers is now!

Through a long-term research partnership with the Cornell University Technology for Animal Biology and Environmental Research Lab (TABER), Cellular Tracking Technologies is proud to bring the LifeTag(TM) series of small animal trackers to the market.

This groundbreaking technology allows 0.4g trackers to last for the lifetime of your subjects.  Be the first to document fine scale movement of small critters.  These unprecedented capabilities are a game changer for studies ranging from migratory tracking to habitat utilization studies.

What People are Saying About Us

  • Cellular Tracking Technologies has been an absolutely critical partner since we launched Project SNOWstorm in the winter of 2013-14, with the goal of understanding the winter ecology of snowy owls. Since then, we've used CTT transmitters on more than 75 snowy owls in 14 states and provinces. CTT has been incredibly responsive, working with us in an ongoing, adaptive manner to figure out the best approaches in terms of transmitter design, duty cycles and similar issues for a species that had never been tracked before by GSM. They've consistently pushed the envelope in terms of onboard instrumentation like temperature sensors and accelerometers, always trying to increase the kinds of data we can collect without dramatically increasing weight or cost. We simply couldn't do the work we do without CTT.

  • The reintroduction of the Bearded Vulture is one of the most ambitious environmental projects in Andalusia, Spain. Having the maximum number of daily locations is needed, and for this reason, it is important to use a technology like that of Cellular Tracking Technologies. We have deployed CTT transmitters on vultures in the natural park of Cazorla and have had positive results. The transmitters are obtaining many more positions than conventional transmitters and are running without glitches. We have been able to detect unknown patterns movement, and we are learning interesting things about using temporary space breeding area. We plan to continue using CTT’s units in the future.

  • I have deployed over fifty CTT-1100 GPS-GSM cellular transmitters on Bald and Golden Eagles throughout Virginia. I have been very impressed with performance, data resolution, and durability of the CTT-1000. Further, slots on these units are designed for easy attachment of harness straps. The CTT-1100, as well as all models of transmitters from Cellular Tracking Technologies, are produced by biologists, for biologists. If your research needs require high resolution tracking data then Cellular Tracking Technologies transmitters will exceed your expectations.
