Sol Milne @sol_milne Groups Drones Emerging Tech Open Source Solutions Hi all! Has anyone been able to collect any ID information from a GPS tag, by circling above with a drone? Thinking about FAD detection at sea.Thanks!

Though there's is more focused on radio-telemetry rather than GPS. But the folks there probably people doing it with GPS too. @Wildlife_Drones @Debbie_Saunders 1 Reply Sol Milne 10 November 2022 3:39pm Thanks Carly! I've been in awe of what Wildlife Drones is doing, but as you say my work at the moment is focussed on existing GPS units rather than telemetry for tracking. I'll still reach out & ask though. Thanks for your help! :) X Reply Kim Lane @KimLane | She/Her A systems and policy specialist, currently working as the Quality & Accreditation Manager for Ceres Tag. 15 November 2022 4:44am Only have a solution for on land using Ceres Tags devices and a software of your choice.

Thanks for sharing, this is really interesting! I'll check out the website & see what I can find out about the mechanics of the device. Thanks again!

Unfortunately most receiver packages are a bit too large for hobbyist-style drones (from what I've seen). Depending on the range/distance from shore, you might be able to have a shore-based receiver system?
