Liquid Robotics was founded by researchers who wanted to find a reliable and persistent way to monitor humpback whales. After the existing methods and tools fell short, the Wave Glider was invented. Ever since, ocean research has been woven into every strand of what we do; even as we’ve expanded into other industries.
To continue our commitment to the research community, we offer an open integration platform, access to a robust community of users, and discounted pricing on Wave Gliders to non-profit research institutions and universities through the Wave Gliders for Researchers Program.
The Wave Glider researcher community is united by a desire to push the boundaries of research and sciences through the use of our robotic platform. It is a diverse and global group of experts who seek to discuss or learn about existing and potential Wave Glider applications.
The community is open to existing Wave Glider customers and provides a forum for product feedback, sharing experiences, and connecting with Liquid Robotics experts.

With a modular payload design, energy harvesting power system (avg. 5-20W continuous power), and multiple sensor placement options the Wave Glider can support a wide rang of sensors (as well as towing).
Use the Wave Glider as a mothership to act as the communications interface between shore/vessel operations and other underwater, surface, and air assets.
From acidification to zooplankton, and everything in between, the Wave Glider can be re-configured to support a range of sensors and missions.
