The Argos System is a constellation of satellites on a polar orbits, that cover the globe with data service. It uses a robust data transmission system that is able to pick up the weakest signals in the harshest of environments. Argos is extremely useful in remote environments or over oceans, where terrestrial networks are unavailable. CTT offers products that use Argos exclusively, or as a supplemental technology, to provide frequent updates while the tracking device is out of the GSM coverage area.
Argos is able to provide Doppler shift positioning, as well as data connectivity. Our advanced Argos devices provide GPS accurate positions, Activity Index, battery and device health information, as well as mortality and illness indications.
Our Evolution Series 100 series features two very low cost Argos products. The ES-100 is our smallest and lightest in the CTT Evolution Series, and features a battery-free design. The design uses solar power and has indefinite life, with no battery to wear out. It uses Doppler shift technology to determine position. Click to learn more.
The ES-150 is our more advanced design, with solar and battery capability, as well as our most advanced GNSS/GPS receiver yet. In addition to GPS-level accuracy, it also provides Activity Index, mortality and illness indication, as well as device health. The ES-150 also stores accelerometer data for later retrieval. You can also use the optional SmartVHF feature to track down the device in the field. Click to learn more.
Our ULR system features an Ultra Long Range UHF radio technology. You can deploy multiple base stations that collect data automatically from the devices. The range of these ULR base stations rival current cellular technology. With optional Argos capability, you can still track our animal outside the coverage area, in case of dispersal. The ES-200 features our most advanced GNSS/GPS receiver for very high accuracy and low power, as well as accelerometer. Click to learn more.
Our Evolution Series 500 GSM/Argos hybrid tracking device is our newest flagship product. You get all the benefits of sending large amounts of telemetry data (position, accelerometer, 9 degrees of freedom IMU, and more) with the security of global satellite coverage. Click to learn more.
