Mike Lanzone, CEO of Cellular Tracking Technologies, talks about what drove the development of lightweight GPS+GSM transmitters. Wildlife biologists researching potential conflicts with wind power turbines in Pennsylvania, USA, and curious about the origin and destination of Eastern Golden Eagles compelled Mike and his colleagues to develop something better than satellite technology. The resulting high-frequency […]
The CTT LifeTag is a tremendous advance in multi-year wildlife research, especially for smaller animals. Here are five ways it beats old-school VHF tracking. If you’re not excited yet, wait until the bonus material!
You have GOT to see this! People have asked us for some time now about getting location data on a variety of smaller critters, especially smaller birds, rodents, turtles and reptiles. The wildlife biologists we’ve partnered with for years, met at conferences, and collaborated with have long challenged not only Cellular Tracking Technologies, but ANY […]
What is the role of bird observatories? Simply put, you have the full gambit from research to conservation, and in between those is education.
How much is your desired dataset worth? The answer depends on the questions you are asking and the amount of difficulty involved in getting to the answers. To be sure, these data are incredibly valuable to you. It will certainly be valuable to the scientific researchers you may collaborate with, and the institution you are […]
With so much focus on advances in battery development, we thought now would be a good time to talk about wildlife telemetry and the impact batteries have. Increasing the body of scientific knowledge around animal movement is one goal most researchers share. This means getting data on animal movement. Electronic sensors can add incredible amounts […]
Take a look at a recent deployment project we contributed to. (Ours is the one with no external antenna!) If you’re a Wildlife Biologist, and you want to see the data from this bird for yourself, let us know when you’re available for a quick chat. We’ll send you a 32GB USB3 thumb drive with […]
This year, we have expanded the species for which our pioneering CTT FlightMode duty cycle is compatible. Since the spring of 2017, we have been working closely with PhD student Randy Knapik (Michigan State University) to roll out and test FlightMode for Mute Swans (Cygnus olor).
