The next generation of animal-borne satellite transmitters was designed for the TIROS/ARGOS satellite system and provided increased reliability and per­ formance in a smaller package. One such transmitter design has evolved be­ yond the experimental prototype stage to the point at which several investi­ gators are routinely collecting data on relatively large numbers of caribou (Rangifer tarandus) and polar bears (Ursus maritimus) (Pank et al. 1985, Har­ rington et al. 1987, Fancy et al. 1988).
