Kongsberg Maritime Ltd, the UK subsidiary of Norway-headquartered global maritime and subsea technology developer Kongsberg Maritime has recently added the autonomous Seaglider to its rental pool and it is now available for diverse commercial and research applications alongside Kongsberg’s other autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), including Remus and Munin.
Seaglider is an autonomous underwater vehicle/underwater glider developed for continuous, long term measurement of oceanographic parameters.
Rather than an electrically driven propeller, the vehicle uses small changes in buoyancy and wings to achieve forward motion. The system's pitch and roll are controlled using adjustable ballast (provided by the mass of the vehicle battery).
