Featuring automatic, unattended, wireless download of GPS data
Designed to study the movements of badgers in relation to cattle in order to determine if disease is being transmitted from badgers to cattle. The Telemetry Solutions badger collar is a wise compromise between going overboard with weight and using a collar with a battery that is too small. This fits into the category that we refer to as the medium mammal collar.
Unlike the illustration below our badger collars utilize internal UHF and VHF antennas. Click here for an actual photo of a badger with our GPS collar on it and read about The Badger Cattle Contact Project in UK.
How it works
When you need GPS collars for badgers the first step is a fact finding, non-decision making meeting with our well informed sales person. During that meeting we will listen to your needs as well as ask you questions relevant to your project.
Our sales person will ask you to accept an invitation to view his computer on your screen. You will be shown how our user software operates and how you set times and dates for GPS positioning. We find this very helpful in expediting your understanding of your programming choices. Next you will be asked to provide the maximum weight that your study species can carry. Based upon your answers to this and many other questions we will create the choices you have for the specification for your product. Within 48 hours of this meeting you will receive an email explaining your choice of product. This is all custom tailored to your needs based upon the answers you provide during the meeting.
