Gantz-Mountain is proud to announce our recent collaboration with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Fort Belknap Fish and Wildlife Department to evaluate our AI-enabled smart sensors to help with conservation efforts for the endangered black-footed ferret on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation in Montana. The team leveraged integrated FLIR Boson 640 thermal cameras and Intelligence Automation Analytics on the Long-Range Intelligence Sensor Node (LRISN) to detect ferrets so they could be counted, trapped, and vaccinated against the lethal impacts of canine distemper and sylvatic plague. Our system effectively identified ferret-sized animals from 500 meters away, which is an advantage over detecting ferrets with truck-mounted spotlights. Gantz-Mountain looks forward to other opportunities to support conservation efforts with our smart-edge technology.
