Wildlife Monitoring

Argos is one of the few systems that provide global coverage to a wide range of existing transmitters adapted to monitoring wildlife as well as the capacity to connect new technology.
Discover

8,000+

animals tracked every month

300,000+

animals already tracked with Argos

Global System

that can track animals in remote areas

Low-power

consumption, so beacons can be smaller and last longer

Understanding the Earth’s biodiversity

Argos is the only satellite system capable of connecting very small transmitters

Coupled with its global coverage and capacity to be easily integrated into new innovations, Argos offers the means to improve knowledge that is vital for implementing conservation measures, effective land management, and fighting against poaching and massacres.

Discover the wide range of solutions currently available for four major wildlife categories:

Birds

Marine Animals

Land Animals

Fish

birds

Birds

Today, 14% of species threatened with extinction are birds. The top five threats to birds are industrial farming, logging, invasive species, hunting & trapping & climate change.

Argos offers the possibility to combine location data from a wide range of existing bird transmitters with Earth Observation data to better understand bird migrations in the face of climate change.

Argos Solutions for Bird Tracking

Argos is capable of tracking birds and their migrations across the world thanks to its global coverage.

Bird
Tracking

Thanks to miniaturized trackers weighing as little as 2g, Argos provides solutions for nearly 3500 different species of birds making it possible to track and locate species whose migratory behavior hasn’t yet been determined.

Location
& Data Collection

Start collecting data.

Understanding
Behavior

Synchronize your bird tracks with Meteorological data such as temperature and wind to better understand migrations.

Finding
your Bird

Concerned there is a problem with your tagged bird? Get alerted to any changes or use the CLS platform finder to find your active tags.

Centralize
your Data

Discover our tailor-made solutions for your needs allowing you to view data from all your platforms including sensor data and metadata.

Marine Animals

The numbers of many species is decreasing at an alarming rate and the number of marine families listed as endangered, such as whales, dolphins, manatees and sea turtles, are on the rise.

More than just a location and data collection system, Argos provides you with various tools to help analyze changes and understand behavior.

Argos Solutions for Marine Animal Tracking

As a robust & reliable system, Argos makes it possible to track marine animals in each of the Earth’s oceans & seas.

Marine
Animal Tracking

In spite of the apparent difficulty of observing these animals, extremely robust and reliable Argos transmitters can record a variety of information such as temperature and depth providing key insight into their ecology.

Location
& Data Collection

Start collecting data.

Understanding
Behavior

Meteorological data such as currents, sea surface temperature, phytoplankton provide further insight into marine animal movements.

Finding
your Marine Animal

Has your Argos tag detected too soon? Has it been a while since your turtle surfaced? Concerned about the location of your seal? Dedicated alerts and the CLS platform finder can identify anomalies and find your active Argos tag in the field.

Analyze
Changes

Using predicted environment from ocean-biogeochemical models, our experts can integrate spatio-temporal and multi-population dynamics and consider interactions among populations of different marine species and between populations and their physical and biological environment.

Centralize
your Data

Discover our tailor-made solutions for your needs allowing you to view data from all your platforms including sensor data and metadata.

land animal

Land Animals

Argos provides an affordable solution to help understand the distribution of animals in a given territory in order to protect them more efficiently.

Argos also offers a solution to support herding, species re-introduction and species protection.

Argos Solutions for Land Animal Tracking

Follow land animals in near real-time thanks to Argos’15-minute revisit time.

Land
Animal Tracking

Around 2,000 land animals are tracked with Argos every month thanks to robust equipment that can withstand the most extreme environmental conditions.

Location
& Data Collection

Start collecting data.

Understanding
Behavior

Synchronize your tracks with Meteorological data such as Ice cover and Earth Observation data such as vegetation to better understand migrations.

Finding
your Land Animal

Is your lynx not moving? Has your lion moved out of your natural reserve? Get alerted to alarming changes and use the platform finder to locate active tags in the field.

Centralize
your Data

Discover our tailor-made solutions for your needs allowing you to view data from all your platforms including sensor data and metadata.

Herd
Management

How to manage wild herd? Space connectivity can provide a global picture of space use.

Fish

Using the Argos satellite system to track fish and study their migrations and distribution areas has proven crucial for the implementation of effective conservation methods, to define protected areas or even to establish periods of catch.

Argos Solutions for Fish Tracking

Adapted hardware and global coverage make Argos an ideal partner for tracking fish.

Fish
Tracking

In spite of the apparent difficulty of observing fish, extremely robust and reliable Argos transmitters can record a variety of information such as temperature and depth over a period of time providing key insight into their ecology.

Location
& Data Collection

Start collecting data.

Understanding
Behavior

By combining transmitter light level measurements with sea surface temperature and bottom topography, our argos experts provide an enhanced underwater geolocation service that works for all pop-up and internal tags for fish.

Finding
your Fish

Once your tag has been programmed to detach, use the CLS platform finder to retrieve it when it reaches the surface. The platform finder can find active tags in the field up to 100km away.

Analyze
Changes

Models developed by our experts,and using argos data, are capable of simulating population dynamics and the impact of environmental and climate changes on fish populations.

Centralize
your Data

Discover our tailor-made solutions for your needs allowing you to view data from all your platforms including sensor data and metadata.
