Kongsberg Seaglider AUV

The new Kongsberg Seaglider AUV will be a highlight on the Kongsberg Maritime Offshore Europe stand (2C90) this year. Launched in August, this new product is the result of the leading subsea technology developer and AUV manufacturer’s acquisition of the Seaglider exclusive commercial license from the University of Washington in May 2013.

Kongsberg Seaglider is also the first vehicle from the new Kongsberg Maritime business unit, Underwater Glider Systems. Based on proven, original glider technology, Kongsberg Seaglider is a comparatively low-cost, very long endurance AUV that is capable of deployment durations in excess of nine months. The technology uses changes in buoyancy for thrust, which combined with an extremely hydrodynamic shape results in very low-energy requirements, hence its ability to partake in much longer missions than propeller driven AUVs.

Kongsberg Seaglider is capable of deploying a diverse range of sensors making it a cost effective instrument for collecting a wide variety of ocean data. This makes it a very attractive option to the many organizations that are facing the challenge of operating on smaller budgets. Kongsberg Maritime is committed to developing additional capabilities for its new AUV whilst at the same time working on transition of the technology into the commercial sector.

Full production of Kongsberg Seaglider is expected by December 2013 although capacity for delivery of special orders is available before this date. Interested parties can discuss requirements and delivery options with the Kongsberg Maritime AUV team at Offshore Europe 2013.
