BSOE faculty research recognition: GPS World Cover Story

Monday, September 4, 2006

September's edition of GPS World features a cover story co-authored by Assistant Professor Gabriel Hugh Elkaim on the MAMMARK tag, used to track elephant seals. Mounted on the head of the animal, the tage is "smaller and more capable" than other models, with "more sensing capabilities that can be deployed for longer durations." It is designed to shed water rapidly when the animal surfaces so the GPS antenna has maximum exposure to the sky, and its sensors and electronics are salt water resistant and can withstand up to 3,000 psi pressure.
