Our new Solar PinPoint Argos tags bring together all of Biotrack’s expertise in Bird tracking tag design. There are various customisable options with these tags to give the best design for your chosen species and the highest chance of getting great data.

Design features

Design features

Customizable options

To reduce the risk of feathers covering the top of the tag, which would reduce light reaching the solar cell and reduce the re-charging ability, we have come up with a selection of additional design options. The standard design is “Flat Top” as shown in the image above.

Crested Dome

Crested Dome
This aerodynamic and streamlined shape diverts feathers to the side and away from the solar deck.

 

Feather Channels 

Feather Channels
For birds with deeper plumage, this design has channels on the sides of the tag, directing the feathers underneath the solar deck.

Tag Height

Tag Height

Additionally, we can increase the height of the tag to bring the solar deck above the feathers, if required (three potential tag height options are shown above with the crested dome, minimum tag height 11mm).
