Technology Description

A smaller RF tag with increased tag life that could be implanted by injection instead of by surgery would substantially overcome present constraints thereby broadening the application range of RF tag. Besides being used to study the survival of small fishes through hydroelectric dams, it would permit tracking of most bats and small birds currently not possible using presently available active tags and could provide a breakthrough to understanding interaction between wind turbines and bats.
