Concept cars, why not concept GPS collars?

There is one person in particular here at Telemetry Solutions that can never be found at his desk.  “Has anyone seen Aaron” is a commonly heard phase.  We find him by calling his cell phone.  “Aaron, where are you,” we say.  “Oh, I had to go out to get some carbon fiber.”  Sure, that makes sense…..carbon fiber.  Apparently no one told Aaron that we don’t build race cars.  But it does appear that we build concept GPS collars.  Carbon fiber is stronger than steel and when you have a rigid collar made from it the comfort factor is surprising.  And it’s very light.  It’s a bit expensive and very labor intensive but apparently we are setting aside a section of the shop for fiberglass and carbon fiber housing production.  At this stage it is experimental but I’m willing to bet we have it in field tests by The New Year.  Next comes flexible solar panels incorporated directly into the collar and ultra capacitors replacing the big GPS batteries.
