Various external attachment techniques have been developed that indirectly attach transmitters to birds via a neck collar, backpack, harness or leg band. Neck collars and backpacks generally have excellent transmitter retention (often for the life of the bird). Various harness designs are available that provide better fits to particular species because poorly fitting harnesses may cause abrasions or impede wing movement. In addition, the design of a sensor housing, attached to the harness via a base plate, must often be adapted to specific species and the requirements set by the applied sensors, i.a. in terms of size and antenna positions.
Please contact us to discuss your needs in sensor housings for avian harnesses. For adaptation to available sensors and harnesses, a detailed 3D-model or a hands-on test are strongly advisable.
