We have developed a radio-tracking system that can be mounted to an off-the-shelf drone. When the drone is flown, it creates a highpoint which maximises the radio-receiver’s ability to scan the area for signals from nearby radio-tagged animals. This data is then relayed to the base station computer where you can view the locations of your animals live on a map.
Unlike other wildlife monitoring drone sensors, such as visual or thermal cameras, our system doesn’t require you to fly directly above or in close proximity of the animals you are tracking.
Our system is compatible with very-high frequency (VHF) radio-tags. It can track up to a hundred individual frequencies simultaneously, so long as all tags are within a two MHz bandwidth (e.g. 150-152 MHz).
Our system doesn’t require you to fly in a fixed flight path to pick up signals. Because it uses triangulation to pinpoint tag locations, you can actually have the flexibility to fly in whatever path you’d like.
Our system is now available for hire! To book a system for your upcoming tracking project, please contact us today.
