I really doubt the flipper team knows any of the animal tags. But they know RFID and the know FDX and the Animal Tags speaking ‘FDX over RFID’. What a coincidence, but lucky for us pet owners.
Let me google: Microchip implant (animal) - Wikipedia
Finally, there’s the AVID brand FriendChip type, which has unique encryption characteristics. Cryptographic features are welcomed by pet rescuers or humane societies that object to outputting an ID number “in the clear” for anyone to read, along with authentication features for detection of counterfeit chips, but the authentication in “FriendChips” has been found lacking and rather easy to spoof to the AVID scanner. Although no authentication encryption is involved, obfuscation requires proprietary information to convert transmitted chip data to its original label ID code.
I really don’t understand, why anyone thinks it is a good idea to obfuscate an anonymous ID. The ID should be readable as easy as possible.
But as written before, I don’t think the Flipper team will dig deeper in animal tags. But lucky you, it is open source. If you are interested, feel free to get hands on a AVID Scanner (The MiniTracker 3 looks promising. The MiniTracker I and Pro are discontinued. Maybe easier to get) and verify. Than extract/analyze the firmware (this isn’t open source and most likely not legal). Or get the missing information somehow else.
Maybe in your area. I’m reading cross since a few month, it is not used in Europe, as far as I know. Just marketing blah.
Keep in mind, that the vet trackers (f.ex. Products - All | Avid Identification Systems, Inc.) have much bigger antennas, so they go better through the skin. The scan with a flipper may needs more time. This is not an error, this is physic.
