Glider

Teledyne Webb Research (TWR), a leading manufacturer of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles including the Slocum glider and Slocum hybrid glider, has announced  the phased opening of a Slocum glider service support and repair facility within its sister Teledyne Marine Group company, Teledyne TSS Ltd. which is located in Watford, Hertfordshire (UK).  
 


Ben Allsup, Slocum glider Product Line Manager, said:  "We are pleased and excited to geographically extend our world class service and support to enhance response capability and reduce maintenance and spare part turn times."
 


The Slocum glider is an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) driven by a buoyancy engine capable of long-term deployment for measuring oceanographic parameters.  The Slocum G2 glider has a maximum depth rating of 1000m, requires very little power to operate and can be deployed for as long as one year. The glider’s low logistics, high performance characteristics and modular design make it ideally suited for persistent ocean surveillance using a broad range of available sensor suites.  The Slocum hybrid G2 complements the vehicle's buoyancy drive with a small folding blade thruster to enable additional flight modes and provide the ability to operate in strong water density stratifications and higher current regimes.
