Wildlife Cameras

Thursday, December 8th, 2005

For years our customers have used mounted still life cameras to photograph wildlife around the clock. These can utilize various types of triggers ranging from motion detectors to hidden pressure sensors that wait to be trod on. These days there are several companies that have systems to make streaming wildlife video available over the web. It seems not to matter how remote the animals are either, they find ways to power these video systems. A quick search on Yahoo produced this company http://www.seemorewildlife.com

GPS Interference Tests

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

We all understand how the GPS system operates, especially if you are using GPS on wildlife. And everyone knows that your GPS collars acquire signals from GPS satellites in order to obtain locations right? But did you know that there are times at which the signals coming from those GPS satellites are interferred with? From time to time, the federal government of The United States conducts interference tests in certain areas. They alert us to those tests before they perform them. To find out if there is one scheduled in your area, check out this website http://www.navcen.uscg.gov/gps/gpsnotices/default.htm
