Even though the term “falconry” may sound fantastical, the technique of utilizing trained birds of prey to aid in the control of pest birds is both genuine and efficient. Since many people are unaware with the technique of falconry, this article will go into further depth to explain what it is and how birds of prey are taught in it.
Improved ability to determine demographic rates and track mobility and patterns of marked people without severe disruption or requirement for recapture was achieved using falcon tracking network.
Abundance of Features
Raptors are typically sparse, moving over large distances in the course of their flights, and in order to find out more, we are using tracing devices. This technology allows bird biologists to track, or track, bird’s movements, and thus answers critical questions about their life histories, migration ecology, year cycles, and conservation threats. Hallux Lightweight GPS is our most versatile tracker, has ultra-long battery life, can connect to an external power supply and switch back to the battery when external power is removed, it is capable of using traditional GPS tracking combined with WiFi tracking, falcon tracking network, SOS emergency features greatly enhances the tracking capabilities of Hallux Lightweight GPS in the interior as well as major urban centers, and it can be used with sensors.
It is highly technical, innovative GPS-radio equipment. It uses the most powerful, microaturized technologies for the detection of birds like falcons, hawks, even smaller birds such as parrots. Most importantly, this GPS unit has a long-range radio transmitter that can transmit your GPS data. This GPS device has temperature sensors, accelerometers, and GPS receiver.
This GPS device can be configured many different ways, where it is necessary to track the GPS. The tracking aspect seems like an afterthought, but HalluxGPS already can see how this would make finding birds a lot easier. Just set up the tracking device on your raptor’s back, and then enable the GPS. This contraption is worn by birds on their lower backs, with its antennas pointing backward.
Easy to carry for Raptors
The major obstacle in front of HalluxGPS was making the GPS units small enough that Falcons can easily be carried. It is that combination of redundancy in signals that we think is important for falconers, making sure they still have the ability to track a bird in a conventional manner should a data link be lost temporarily. With a GPS, researchers can match its flight path with the one recorded by the radar, isolating the point at which the system has successfully picked up the birds.
Range up to 40 km
Each device connected to the falcon tracking network immediately connects with it through GPS. It is possible to communicate between a base station and a GPS device as long as they are within range of each other. It is possible to transmit data over a distance of up to 40 kilometers or 25 miles. According on the situation at hand, you may notice greater or less variation in range.
