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!
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 Lanzone and Casey Halverson to develop something better than satellite technology. The resulting high-frequency of location points gave a far better data set, allowing the researchers to better describe flight […]
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 […]
Over 350 individual Canada geese have been tracked with CTT’s patented GPS-GSM tracking technology for wildlife telemetry. The compiled location data span across the vast Nearctic wilderness, including metropolitan and suburban areas. The iconic and familiar species still hides many of its secrets from researchers. But with insights gleaned from long-lived transmitters, wildlife researchers and […]
Wildlife researchers and managers who use wireless telemetry devices generally have three choices for retrieving data: A) Short Range Radio, B) Satellite Uplink and C) Cellular/GSM. Each have their own pros and cons including A) data throughput, B) restrictions on the weight your animal can bear , and C) energy constraints. At CTT™, we want […]
There is so much data that can be gathered using modern wildlife telemetry that it is easy to just put tags on animals and see what we get. But this approach can lead to problems, which can easily be avoided. The best approach is to have clear goals at the outset of the project.
