Combined with modern computer-based geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing data, North Star products and services collect and leverage vast amounts of information. This information can be used to identify and refine effective strategies to conserve the world’s biodiversity and habitats, to monitor the world’s oceans and atmosphere, and to better understand, manage, and track wild (and domestic) animals. Knowledge is, after all, power.

The mission of North Star is to provide an expert and dynamic capability, through research and development of products, that will improve the world we live in via the acquisition of information describing the natural world around us.
