General Information

Argos Bird – MRBA-25G – is a PTT –  Platform Transmitter Terminal – for tracking birds over 800g. It uses solar panels and miniature electronic components for long-term monitoring. To avoid a change in behavior of the animal on which it is placed, the PTT has been designed to not exceed 3% of the total animal weight. Argos bird PTT is also distinguished by a very small footprint, advanced technical performances and a reduced price to draw more animals with the same budget.

For a faultless accuracy of positioning, Syrlinks has embedded a GNSS receiver (GPS/Galileo) in the Argos PTT. The position of the animal will be permanently known with positioning accuracy below 10 meters. Finally, a number of sensors have been fitted to meet the needs of scientists depending on the species tracked: accelerometer, temperature, pressure, immersion…

Argos bird PTT is a very complete Argos tracking beacon which offers great opportunities for scientific monitoring of animals both for one-off follow-ups and for large tagging campaigns.
