SPLASH10-F (Fastloc®) tags are data-archiving, satellite transmitting tags designed for tracking vertical and horizontal movements of free-range marine animals.
A SPLASH10-F tag works best for researchers conducting fine-scale movement studies on diving animals like cetaceans, sea turtles and pinnipeds.
The SPLASH10-F comes in a variety of shapes for a variety of attachments—whatever works best for your animal.
Fastloc technology is what sets this tag apart. Fastloc uses GPS to provide highly accurate locations in under a second. Fastloc allows for fine-scale locations on animals that surface too quickly for a traditional GPS or Argos fix—Fastloc acquires positions every few minutes compared to a maximum of a few dozen a day with Argos-only tags.
