The PHOENIX


A rebirth of global bird tracking & data monitoring!


The Phoenix—our latest bird-tracking and data-monitoring technology, and the first of its kind worldwide—is an internal GPS receiver with a 56-channel GPS engine within a nitrogen-filled enclosure. Manufactured by Polaris Avian Instruments, it transmits real-time data from the field to the internet using a built-in solar cell and charging circuit, with a rechargeable Li-Polymer battery.

IT’S A REAL POWERHOUSE DEVICE that rises above the status quo to deliver actionable data to conservation and academic communities alike. So, without further ado, we’d like to give you a more detailed overview of our latest product (for your convenience, you can download our Phoenix one-sheet as a PDF).
