Get your animal's data from anywhere you can access the internet.

The model G5-2D uses the Iridium satellite to transmit GPS location data collected by the collar. An integrated VHF transmitter allows you to track the animal in the field. Unlimited data is charged to you at a fixed fee each year. Your first year of data is included in the purchase price. Either Neolink neonate monitoring  or geo-fencing are available at a nominal cost.

Your collar's GPS location data is uploaded to ATS' managed Iridium website (atsidaq.net) according to the schedule you choose. A Google Earth data file is included. You can set-up your collars to send SMS text alerts for mortality, geo-fencing, or Neolink neo-natal birth alerts.

The G5-2D collar is programmed wirelessly using the Wildlink Comm. Module and Windows-based software running on your PC. You can control how often fixes are collected and stored, how often data is uploaded to the ATS Iridium website (up to six uploads per day, each holding 22 locations), and how often the VHF beacon will transmit (this allows you to maximize battery life).

You can also remotely command program changes to the fix rate and mortality schedule, fix duration time, and Iridium data transmission interval, using the website.
