Home / Case Studies / Animal tracking: Robust power tracks and protects wildlife in real time
Wildlife rangers and conservationists around the world use collars to keep a watchful eye on animals and study their behavior. The result is that scientists gain insight into the natural world, including the size of habitat and physical activity of animals.
Collar manufacturer African Wildlife Tracking (AWT) tailors its devices to meet the unique requirements of various species and their habitats. Its trackers transmit data as often as 10 seconds to keep scientits informed about data such as temperature, light intensity, daily movement, home range sizes and information from a 3-axis accelerometer from which mortality can be detected. Around 9,000 elephants in Africa and Asia have been studied thanks to AWT radio-GPS collars.
AWT's collars rely on dependable power and robutness of Saft's LSH batteries, supplied by its local distributor, Just Batteries. The batteries provide reliable power in hot climates that other battery type would not endure. In addition, they are mechanically tough to survive the wilderness.
The performance and robustness of a battery for our tracking device systems is crucial. Using a collar for security to prevent poaching requires rapid alerts and our customers rely on unfailing technology that can communicate immediately. We go for the best battery and to us, that's the reason why we've worked with Saft right from the start.Martin Haupt Founder of AWT
