If studying migration, without the need for accurate locations, then satellite PTTs with Argos Doppler location accuracy have been used for decades to discover important migration routes and wintering areas. Our Argos secure data portal allows you to access your data usually in under an hour, without having to retrieve the tracking device from the field.
The KiwiSat® 303 Argos transmitter is a development of the KiwiSat® 202 adding more flexible scheduling. The transmitter is highly efficient to maximize battery life whilst providing superior location quality.
Efficient 500mW transmitter maximises operating life whilst delivering superior position accuracy.
Extended operating life achieved with user-programmable transmit scheduling.
Temperature sensor measures local environmental temperature.
Our KiwiSats® are rugged and suitable for birds that dive to 250m. Combined with their more economical pricing, they have suited studies requiring getting locations remotely from larger seabirds.
