Tracking & Management system
is a satellite based monitoring system designed to give operators
a clear visibility of the location of their animals through scheduled
reporting. It uses the Global Positioning System (GPS)
to accurately pinpoint current location, velocity and heading
at user-specified times. This data is downloaded using a receiver
connected to a laptop computer. The range can vary from a few
hundred meters to a few kilometers depending on
the surroundings. The data can then be exported or displayed on
a 3D map.
HAWK-UHF device records the following parameters:
Latitude & Longitude
Horizontal < 5 meters (50%), < 8 meters (90”%)
Altitude < 10 meters (50%), < 16 meters (90%)
Re-acquisition < 2 seconds (90%)
Hot Start < 10 seconds (50%), < 13 seconds (90%)
Warm Start < 38 seconds (50%), < 84 seconds (90%)
Cold Start < 50 seconds (50%), < 84 seconds (90%)
Range: 100m to 2 km (ground-to-ground line of sight)
2 km – 8 km (air to ground, line of sight)
Download speed: 4 readings per second (depending on quality of
settings and schedules are remotely programmable using the HAWK
time between readings: 5 minutes
The device can be scheduled to report its location at set intervals,
specific times or intervals between specified times.
following is approximate battery life based on one “D-cell”
battery under normal circumstances. This calculation is not a
guarantee but only an approximation.
Positions can be viewed on Google Earth 3D mapping software.
Data is stored on the user’s PC were it can be accessed
All data is backed up on a server.
The HAWK software provides: Tabular, Map based (Google Earth),
file export and historical
data replay capabilities.
