About the Wave Glider

Energy harvesting and propulsion are critical for unmanned ocean robots operating in the middle of the ocean. Our engineers answered these challenges with the Wave Glider. It delivers greater energy harvesting, additional propulsion, and new capabilities which expand the range of applications and solutions available to customers.

Roger Hine, inventor of the Wave Glider discusses how these small, scalable, wave-powered robots are enabling the “Blue Economy.”
