September 2020 Update - SonarPoint Hydrophone Selection
This month we answer common questions about PAM capabilities including hydrophone selection, simultaneous frequency monitoring, self noise and frequency response curves. Which hydrophone is best suited for your projects? Find out the pros and cons here.Read the september 2020 newsletter here
August 2020 - Next Steps For Underwater Acoustics... and beyond traditional studies.
With the launch of Desert Star's newest underwater recorders known as SonarPoint™, we also take a look at what lies in store for underwater acoustics such as SeaTag PSAT fish spawning detection and the future of ropeless fishing.Read More about the latest acoustic innovations here
July 2020 - Introducing The Acoustic Release Cartridge For Cold Environments
In this month's newsletter we take a look at the Quality Control Team testing with the SAM-1™ Acoustic Modem, introducing the ARC cartridge replacement system (including a Video Tutorial) and more of Desert Star Systems in the news!
June 2020 - SeaTag™ Paper Review: Physical Recovery Of Re-usable PSATs
Satellite tags leap forward into the era of Artificial Intelligence! SeaTag-MOD PSATs were used to train an algorithm to differentiate living from dead Green Sturgeons in the San Francisco Bay area. This was made possible by the physical recovery of tags for a frequency analysis with complete datasets.Read The Paper Review
May 2020 - Affordability Of High Capability Wildlife Studies
Cost is often the largest hindrance to satellite tagging studies. How can a relevant sample size be obtained in order to produce a statistically meaningful study? In a world of competitive science and frequently constrained budgets the solution is not only technological innovation but also economic innovation. Learn more about the economic innovation offered by SeaTags™ and SonarPoint™ Hydrophone Recorders.
April 2020 - Acoustic Arrays For Sound Source Localization
Sound source arrays work by obtaining a precisely time-synchronized acoustic recording from three or more hydrophone locations. By using the difference in which the sound is received by each recording location it is possible to accurately determine where a sound source originated along with directional heading and speed.
March 2020 - Satellite Tags For The Dynamic Management Of Sea Turtles
In the management of sea turtles and other at risk species we are suffering from a sparsity of sensors. This leaves our wildlife and fisheries managers often guessing to make decisions that effectively mitigate risk to animals while limiting impact on fishing, shipping and other activities at sea.
Argos satellite tags can be a powerful tool to inform decision making.
