Wave Glider

Wave Glider Autonomous Surface Vehicles

By continuously harvesting energy from the environment, Wave Gliders are able to travel long distances, hold stations, and monitor vast areas without ever needing to refuel. A unique two-part architecture and wing system that directly converts wave motion into thrust, and solar panels provide electricity for sensor payloads. This means that Wave Gliders can travel to a distant area, collect data, and return for maintenance without ever requiring a ship to leave port. As a charter member of the Liquid Robotics Inc.,  BlueZone Group is the original and most experienced distributor for Wave Gliders in Australia and has delivered a number of systems to the Royal Australian Navy. The versatile Wave Glider is equipped with GPS, sophisticated computers for navigation and payload control, and satellite communications systems. It also has state of the art, ocean sensors to monitor and measure the environment around it. The power needed to operate the sensors and computers is provided by solar panels.
