Operation Tripwire to aid anti-poaching efforts

July 18, 2015

Operation Tripwire is a technology project for Wildlife Conservation.

Mike Vincent and a small design team are developing long range detection beams to help track the movements of Rhino horn poachers in South Africa.

This clip shows Mike Vincent assembling smaller optical assemblies for field testing on farms in New Zealand.  The final system will utilize multiple beams that work over a distance of 500m of flat ground to detect anyone crossing key borders, tracks and other areas of interest – alerting to their direction of travel by way of long range radio communication.  We are very excited about this project.
