Tags aren’t just for animals. Tag your equipment too!
Asset recovery tags are deployed in syntactic foam floats that carry cameras and/or accelerometer packages. They are optimized for transmissions when the antenna is vertical above the waterline. All of our asset recovery tags incorporate a pinger that can be activated to transmit a short pulse for fine-scale locating using a UHF handheld antenna and receiver.
Designed for pinnipeds, the PRD-RP (Payload Recovery Device-Remote Pinniped) can survive onshore abuse and depths up to 2,000 meters. There are many ways to find the device including Argos locations, a strobe light, or a UHF beacon. The PRD-RP can be used multiple times so the same valuable payload can be used again right away. The PRD-RP is the only commercially available release system suitable for deployments on seals, sea lions, and fur seals. As a bonus, there are no shipping restrictions with the device, unlike other squib-style release mechanisms.
