Seaglider Animation  

This Seaglider animation shows how it moves through the ocean and communicates with satellites to determine its position as well as transmits and receives data. As the Seaglider dives and ascends its wings cause it to glide, allowing horizontal movement. Sensors monitor depth, heading and attitude of the vehicle as well as constantly scanning the ocean to determine water properties.
