GATEWAY Wave Glider

Wave Gliders provide an ideal, low-cost and persistent platform to communicate with subsea equipment and instruments via acoustic modem, providing a link by satellite communications to shore or other vehicles and installations. Depending on the application, extracted data can be transferred or recorded on the Wave Glider for later retrieval.
