The Wave Glider SV Series
The Wave Glider SV Series are the first unmanned autonomous marine robots to use the ocean’s endless supply of wave energy for propulsion (no manpower, no emissions, no refueling). With its ability to stay out at sea for long durations through all weather conditions, and communicate real-time data from the surface of the ocean, the Wave Glider SV Series is helping to advance mankind’s ability to observe and understand the world’s oceans.
First introduced in 2009, Wave Gliders have since traveled more than 300,000 nautical miles, set a world record for longest distance traveled by an autonomous vehicle, and been deployed on more than 100 customer missions ranging from the Arctic and Australia, to the Canary Islands and Loch Ness.
The SV Series represents the next generation of Wave Glider technology and includes the Wave Glider SV2 with a compatible growth path to the high-end Wave Glider SV3. Customers can choose the Wave Glider that best fits their mission and budgetary requirements, or mix and match for complex operations.
