Check out this quarter's newsletter for a look at how to initialize your tags prior to deployment and how to use haul-out mode for other things besides pinniped research.    ...

The haul-out function is much more useful than first meets the eye. Not only will it alert you if the tag comes out of the water but it also improves Argos tag initialization results by extending the initialization transmission duration due to the slower haul-out...

Why is the initialization process important?  Note: Do not initialize pop-up tags We highly recommend tag initialization prior to deployment for our SPOT and SPLASH tags to help ensure locations are received as quickly as possible after deployment, regardless of animal behavior. Tag initialization allows Argos...

Check out this quarter's newsletter for a look at how our ATS data product was shown to measure activity and computes a summarized value of overall activity levels. Also, learn how to keep your tags stored long-term until you can get back on the water.    ...

Fastloc processing relies on ephemeris and almanac data to create location estimates. Recent changes to the almanac and ephemeris servers caused an issue in the desktop version of WC-DAP.
