Seaglider​ AUV becomes part of Hydroid

1st November 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg’s Seaglider AUV has been transferred to Hydroid, Hydroid announced on 1 November.

Hydroid will integrate Seaglider into its portfolio of AUV products, which includes the Remus family of systems. 

Seaglider was jointly developed by the University of Washington School of Oceanography and University of Washington Applied Physics Lab starting in 1995 with funding provided by the Office of Naval Research and National Science Foundation. The technology uses changes in buoyancy to move through the water column in a saw-tooth pattern while collecting data.

Duane Fotheringham, president of Hydroid, said: ‘We look forward to leveraging the strengths of these advanced technologies to enhance both product lines and offer a more diverse set of solutions to our customers.’
