Overview
The Wave Glider revolutionises how we explore and understand the world's oceans by gathering data in ways or locations previously too costly or challenging to operate. Powered by waves and solar energy, the Wave Glider is an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) that allows organisations to build a network of sensors to better understand all aspects of ocean activity.
