All specifications are preliminary and subject to change.

* VHF beacon is set to operate for 7 hours a week at the average. The collar transmits through Iridium after collecting 18 positions in record

** VHF beacon is set to operate for 21 hours a week at the average. The collar transmits through Iridium after collecting 10 positions

*** VHF beacon is set to operate for 48 hours a week at the average. The collar transmits through Iridium after collecting 6 positions for regular and 10 positions for swift fixes

Operating life can be further increased by decreasing the frequency of iridium transmissions (more positions in the record) and/or decreasing average time when VHF beacon is on.
