Cellular Tracking Technologies

Speaker: Andrew McGann

“In Andy’s position as a senior application engineer at Cellular Tracking Technologies (CTT) he combines his background in ornithology with his love of technology and appreciation for geography, in order to help wildlife researchers and organizations around the world obtain the scientific information they need. CTT specializes in “Internet-of-Things” wildlife telemetry devices for worldwide data delivery via global cellular networks. Lightweight, solar-recharging, energy-thrifty, and rugged, CTT devices are worn by wild animals for long-term remote GPS tracking. Andy will discuss the evolution of the technology, the current state-of-the-art, and paint a picture of where we are going.

Over his 15+ years of professional experience in academia, NGO’s, government agencies, and environmental consulting firms, Andy has learned a lot about what can go wrong when combining tech and wildlife. But the “Information Age” has truly arrived for wildlife telemetry, and we are now entering a golden age for movement ecology studies.”
