Wave Glider

The Wave Glider revolutionizes 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 wave and solar energy, the Wave Glider is an autonomous, unmanned surface vehicle (USV) that operates individually or in fleets delivering real-time data for up to a year with no fuel.


24×7 Long-Duration Operations

Station keeping or mobile data collection for up to 12 months with no fuel, emission, or crew

Open & Extensible Platform

Add new sensors and software capabilities. Integrate and operate with other systems

Proven At Sea

Over 1.4 million nautical miles traveled with operations through doldrums, hurricanes/typhoons, and in high latitudes

Scale Coverage Efficiently with Fleets

Expand surveillance and data collection capabilities for higher value missions

Real-Time Communications Gateway: Linking Seabed To Space

Provides immediate situational awareness and accelerated decision making

Safer, More Cost-Effective Operations

Do more with less while keeping people out of harm’s way

Energy harvesting and propulsion are critical for unmanned ocean robots operating in the middle of the ocean. Our engineers answered these challenges with the Wave Glider. It delivers greater energy harvesting, additional propulsion, and new capabilities which expand the range of applications and solutions available to customers.
