Radio-tracking with drones

Radio-track wildlife, invasive species, and livestock the efficient way

Save time and money when radio-tracking animals

We know that radio-tracking animals from the ground can be challenging. Searching for radio-signals across vast, difficult terrain like wetlands or rugged mountains takes a huge amount of time and effort, and the expenses certainly add up too!

With Wildlife Drones’ you can empower your team to cost-effectively collect more radio-telemetry data, more often and with less effort. It’s the world’s most advanced tracking solution for locating tagged animals in real-time. Compatible with any VHF tags globally, our unique sensor technology is a valuable addition to any conservation, management, and environmental science project worldwide.

Drone radio-telemetry – how it works

1. Tag

Tag the animals you would like to track with the VHF radio-tags of your choice.

2. Attach

Attach the Wildlife Drones system to your drone.

3. Fly

Fly the drone and the payload sensor will collect signals from all tagged animals within range.

4. View

View locations of tagged animals in real-time from the base station.

Features and Benefits

Boost your radio-tracking power

Manually radio-tracking wildlife one at a time on foot is incredibly inefficient, especially in challenging terrain. With Wildlife Drones, you now have the ability to track up to 40 radio-tagged animals simultaneously. Importantly, this also reduces your risk of losing animals.
