Wave Powered Oceanographic Gliders

We will use wave energy to cheaply power ocean gliders and drift buoys. We will accomplish this through a) integration of onboard power generation and b) integration of advanced energy storage. We have designed a 100W wave energy converter, designed a, energy storage system, and have identified a glider architecture to house it. These innovations will improve device lifetime, sensor power budget, deployment and recovery costs, enabling more research, cheaper.
