Canopy GPS / Tracking Can't Post

Can anyone tell me where to find a canopy tracking system? I'm specifically looking for a system that can locate a canopy that has been cut away. I've found several relatively small GPS' for locating people, pets, cars, etc. but none of them seem small enough to attach to a riser. Has anyone else figured this out? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Yes, National Parachute Testing Center (NPTC) in Dunnellon, Florida has a system. Send me a private PM and I will put you in touch with the right people.

I orderd one gsm/gps tracker that is about 1.4 cubic inches.
And if my math is somewhat correct thats about the size of 1.2 sqft canopy.

It arrived this morning at the currier but I can't pick it up, I'm going snowboarding soon and won't be home until monday.
