Welcome to e-obs GmbH!

We are an innovative company specialized in engineering and the production of high-end GPS telemetry products to study animal movement and behaviour.

Our special focus are lightweight GPS-tags combining high data rates with intelligent recording and remote data download capabilities.

Our products enable researchers to analyse small scale movement (e.g. cat following a straight path) and distinguish distinct behaviors (e.g. bird in active flight vs. gliding vs. resting on ground).

e-obs offers bird tags as well as mammal collars in numerous shapes and sizes for a variety of study approaches.

Please get in touch with us to learn more...(contact us).

News and timetable!


Our new new tag, the Bird Solar UMTS 25g is out and already deployed in several projects. Get in touch for more infos.
