*surveying protocols are species and habitat-specific

Mission Capabilities

  • Landscape scale
  • Little to no disturbance of species surveyed
  • Safe surveying distances (1500 – 3000 ft.)
  • Geo-referenced imagery and locations accurate to within 1 meter
  • Heat signature detection of camouflaged species or species concealed by vegetation and/ or darkness
  • Close-up visuals of animals and classifying characteristics (ie. Collar colors, antlers, etc.) (see examples below)
  • On-screen GIS overlays and real-time place makers for improved count accuracy and survey area coverage (see examples below)
  • Video and still images for later review
