Equipping Wave Gliders with ADCPs

In recent times, underwater robots have grabbed the spotlight as the new workforce for exploring the ocean. Yet a robot's enduring value depends on the toolkit. In the case study below, you can see how Teledyne RDI's ADCPs have been added to the Wave Glider - a vehicle that can cross the Pacific without ever needing to refuel. Carrying ADCPs on these unmanned vehicles provides a flexible and economical means for monitoring upper-ocean currents. This combined tool provides a unique means to see and deliver information about the underwater situation. As well as enhancing scientific studies, this approach can aid marine operations by improving safety and efficiency as well as reducing risk.
