From animal tracking to remote sensing of sea ice, and rain forests, satellite communications are playing a bigger part than ever in quickly and cost-efficiently monitoring and collecting data from isolated mountain ranges, arctic regions and other remote areas.

Animal Tracking

AST has provided global satellite communications systems such as Iridium 9601 SBD transceivers for many years to enable animal tracking collars to transmit data via satellite to Control Centres globally.  We have assisted in many conservation projects including; brown bears in Sweden, lions in South Africa, Botswana, Kenya, red deer in Germany and caribous in Greenland.

The data is used to provide vital information on projects designed to protect animals in their natural habitat.  The satellite tracking collars, incorporating Iridium SBD technology systems, have been designed to provide scientists with a flexible solution to wildlife monitoring and studies in areas where GSM coverage is unreliable or non-existent.

Flood Monitoring

We have installed some of the most robust satellite-enabled sensors, coupled with highly reliable global satellite communications network communication infrastructures, to allow continuous monitoring of rainfall and water levels in remote flood-prone areas such as Malaysia, enabling the collection, monitoring and interrogation of data, ultimately saving lives.

Climate Change

Many climate change explorations and research functions are based in the arctic regions, making voice and data communication impossible without satellite communications, which are used for both welfare, safety and data transfer.

We work with some of the largest organisations in the world, such as the British Geological Survey, the Met Office Marine Network and MeteoSwiss and many smaller charities including the Cheetah Conservation Fund and The Leopard Conservation Trust.
