Ocean gliders are revolutionizing underwater surveys and missions for ocean data collection. Navigating autonomously in water for weeks or months, depending on the mission, and covering thousands of kilometers, gliders persistently collect a variety of data (physical, chemical, biological, acoustic, etc.) along the water column. Those data are then sent by satellite telemetry to a ground station, avoiding the need for a support ship…

The SEA EXPLORER glider, developed by ACSA in partnership with ACRI, CNRS and IFREMER, successfully completed a two-month mission in collaboration with the Laboratoire d’Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV) of National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC). The glider was launched on 5 September 2013 and recovered by LOV scientists on 5 November at 11:30 at Bay of Angels on the French Riviera. The SEA EXPLORER glider is the world's first multi-sensor Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) with rechargeable batteries to complete such a long mission successfully.

ALSEAMAR announced that the SEA EXPLORER glider (featured on this month's cover of Marine Technology Reporter), developed by ALSEAMAR in partnership with ACRI, CNRS and IFREMER, completed a two-month record mission in collaboration with the Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche (LOV) of National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC). "The mission objective was to evaluate the endurance of our first glider equipped with rechargeable batteries while performing several round trips between France and Corsica Island" said Dr. Hervé Claustre of the CNRS LOV. ALSEAMAR introduced rechargeable Li-Ion batteries as an effective, reliable and affordable solution. "The SEA EXPLORER glider has also acquired a wealth of high resolution data along its transects whose results will be presented by LOV at the Ocean Science Meeting in Honolulu Hawaii in February 2014," said Dr. Claustre…
