VIDEO: Storm and mammal monitoring with the Slocum G3 glider
The animation details two applications for the Slocum G3 glider including Storm Monitoring and Mammal Monitoring.
The Slocum glider by Teledyne Marine is buoyancy driven to enable long range and duration remote water column observation for academic, military, and commercial applications. The Slocum Glider can be deployed and recovered from any size vessel with minimal time on station.
Once the Slocum glider is deployed, it can easily be controlled from anywhere in the world through the use of web based piloting tools. This allows fleets of gliders to be operated remotely with minimal personnel and infrastructure.
