AWE builds a variety of radio tansmitters for wildlife research ranging from 0.2 grams to large, long-range units. While our major emphasis is on avian telemetry systems, we build transmitters for reptiles and small mammals, including bats. Currently, we do not build transmitters for salt-water fish or large mammals. Click on the "Critters with Mitters" tab to view a sample of AWE transmitters on various species.
Our selection of avian transmitters range from miniature glue on units to long-range, multi-year transmitters. Our transmitters come in a variety of attachment styles including glue-on, with or without gauze, backpack, necklace, collar, suture and subcutaneous implant. All 3 - volt model are integrated circuit controlled so that pulse frequency and pulse spacing are extremely stable. In addition, 3 volt models can be modified for mortality or activity mode at no additional charge. Tempertaure sensing is available on all 3 volt units. Reed switch activation is standard on all models.
