After 10 Years of Development
CTT® Internet of Wildlife
In 2006, three scientists came together with an ambitious goal: Develop a device to utilize mobile phone networks to track Golden Eagles with GPS. Several prototypes later, in 2007, a new company was formed : Cellular Tracking Technologies. On November 4, 2007, our first production unit was released on a Golden Eagle. The data collected was absolutely astonishing — and still impressive to this day — with a GPS position every 30 seconds. 10 years later, we are still innovating. Our collaboration with our clients has resulted in incredible new products. Our unique perspective has resulted in the CTT Internet of Wildlife™.
The CTT Internet of Wildlife means you have far greater opportunities to design studies that are enormous in vision, yet start with less than $1,000US. Only CTT can deliver your data over multiple, simultaneous data networks, including satellite, GSM, and Motus. Only CTT helps you expand the scale of your research by providing an infrastructure that can support multiple researchers with different species.
Golden Eagle “G0”, released on November 4, 2007 with our first solar powered CTT™ tracker using the 2G GSM network. Data collection interval is every 30 seconds.
Improved Solar Panel Efficency
Leveraging recent advances in solar panels for space applications, we have greatly increased the efficiency of our solar panels to previously unattainable levels. This allows for CTT® devices to operate with high intensity duty cycles in lower sunlight.
More Satellites for Positioning
Our CTT® Evolution Series products support multiple navigation satellite constellations, including GPS, GLOSNASS, BeiDou, and Galileo. With this brings higher accuracy, faster position times, better coverage, and lower power consumption.
Nanotechnology is changing everything, including batteries. Our new CTT® Evolution Series trackers now utilize this incredible technology. This increases transmitter longevity and allows the tracker to collect and transmit more data.
More Ways To Connect
The CTT® Evolution Series brings more ways to connect your wildlife tracker to you, including faster mobile broadband networks, satellite, VHF and our new Ultra Long Range™ — known as ULR™ — base station technology.
