GPS Tracking Devices for Wildlife Research and beyond

Telemetry Solutions, founded in 1996 is a leading electronics design and manufacturing company and is expert in custom GPS tracking devices for a wide range of wildlife including small to large mammals, herps and birds.

Our most recent development (2017) is the Q4000ER starting at 20 grams including battery. (Built as a collar, total minimum weight is 50 grams.) The main feature of this new product is the substantially increased GPS data transfer range. It opens up unmanned aircraft use to automatically download GPS data from long ranges.

In 2015 we began shipping the FLR V Micro GPS Data Logger starting at 7 grams including battery. This unique, lower cost product can be built into over 300 collar and backpack configurations all of which include the remote, automatic data download feature.
