We have developed a unique drone attachment for radio-tracking tagged animals that revolutionizes the animal tracking industry. By creating a high point wherever the drone is launched, our product increases the quality and quantity of radio-tracking data that can be collected, and enables feral animal controllers, conservation researchers and land managers to get their job done up to 85% quicker than when manual radio-tracking.
Receiving clear signals from radio-tagged animals can be difficult to achieve and is often a very labour intensive and expensive process. The main issue is height. When using hand-held radio-tracking from the ground, you often have to get the antenna as high as possible in order to improve signal detection. This often means finding higher ground, or even hiring helicopters or planes to get the slightest “ping” of a distant radio-tag.
