Video: The Essential Communications Gateway

The ocean is filled with data. But radio waves don’t travel well underwater. And underwater acoustics require a relay at the surface.

So how can you get the data you need in a safe, cost-effective way? Unmanned systems are the answer.

In this video, see how the Wave Glider can:

  • Communicate via acoustic signals, allowing you to harvest and transmit data more frequently (even in real time!)
  • Talk to and share data with underwater vehicles, even offload data and retask them during surveys
  • Deploy and activate undersea networks, including towing and releasing subsea sensors



Whether you need to collect and communicate data in real-time, or create more complex undersea networks, Wave Gliders provide the essential link connecting seabed to space.
