The SeaExplorer glider is a very efficient means for ocean data gathering, capable of long deployment for measuring oceanographic parameters. SeaExplorer moves both horizontally and vertically to reach specific locations and depths completely occupying the survey area. SeaExplorer can patrol for weeks autonomously throughout a region or in a fixed position at a virtual mooring.

Equipped with a variety of sensors in order to carry out a full survey underwater, the glider surfaces periodically to transmit data to shore while receiving new mission commands; acheiving substantial cost savings compared to traditional manned fuel-burning research vessels.

Typical sensors include: CTD, oxygen, turbidity and chlorophyll…
