The autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Seaglider 1KA is the result of a collaborative effort between APL-UW and the UW School of Oceanography, led by Charlie Eriksen, and marketed so far by i-Robot. The Seaglider 1KA is a deep-diving AUV designed for missions lasting many months and covering thousands of miles, able to monitor temperature, salinity and other quantities in the ocean, sending back data in near-real-time using global satellite telemetry.

The G2 Slocum Glider is a versatile remote sensing AUV for ocean research and monitoring. Buoyancy driven, the long range and duration capabilities of Slocum gliders make them ideally suited for water column observations.

The interchangeable nose pump sections and science bay sensor suites give users the flexibility to optimize their glider fleet as mission requirements change. Conceived by Douglas C. Webb and supported by Henry Stommel.
