Helikite bat detectors
Part of my Ph.D research is to study foraging activity of migratory bats during fall insect migration events after cold fronts in south Texas. I'm using a 3.3 cubic meter Helikite to put acoustic detectors up at different altitudes where I think the bats are finding the migrating moths. Here are some photos that show how I deploy the specially adapted Wildlife Acoustics SM2BAT detector from the kite.
