Abstract:

Current animal telemetry devices are large and heavy due to their reliance on batteris to power the electronics and radios. Because of this, many species can't be effectively studied since they can not support the device weight. The smaller size will allow animal telemetry devices to be developed for species that have not had effective monitoring devices previously. The longer duration devices will enable animals to be studied over longer periods of time, perhaps for an animal's lifetime. These studies will enable effective conservation strategies for these threatened and endangered species as they are contingent on acquiring specific knowledge of the species' biology. With TenXsys power innovations, integrated with our already developed animal telemetry devices, many species of animals can be studied, and more effective conservation and restoration strategies can be developed.
