It is early morning in the Uganda National Park, but the African Elephants have already started their day. It can take up to 16 hours for these magnificent animals to eat and drink their normal daily amounts, and the elephants aren’t wasting any time. The 12 animals in this herd are happily grazing, using their huge tusks to churn up the ground in the search for salt and minerals. But the herd is also in considerable danger, as a single tusk can bring in hundreds of thousands of dollars to poachers looking for an easy payday.
Thankfully, on this morning, advanced electronics are safeguarding these elephants from any such poaching threats. These devices are an assortment of sensors, camera traps, drones, and other life-saving technologies that alert wildlife officials of approaching poachers, and they are making a big difference in the fight against poaching today. It takes robust electronics to function in a wildlife environment, however, and without precision manufacturing techniques, these devices couldn’t stand the strain of the job.
Fortunately, VSE has the skills and expertise to manufacture the electronics behind these wildlife protection systems, as well as provide other clean tech engineering services. That is, we manufacture electronics designed to make a difference in the world we live in.
