Oceanographic Data Gathering
The SEA EXPLORER glider is a very efficient means for ocean data gathering, capable of long deployment for measuring oceanographic parameters. SEA EXPLORER navigates both horizontally and vertically to join geo-referenced locations and operating depths. SEA EXPLORER can patrol for weeks autonomously at regional scale or at fixed position like 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; achieving substantial cost savings compared to traditional manned fuel-burning research vessels.
Typical sensors include: CTD, oxygen, turbidity, chlorophyll, etc.
