PacX: Pacific Crossing Challenge

On November 17th, at San Francisco’s St. Francis Yacht Club, Liquid Robotics launched four Wave Gliders on a record-setting journey across the Pacific Ocean – the longest distance ever attempted by an unmanned ocean vehicle.

UVS is the authorised representative for Liquid Robotics in Australia and will support the arrival of Wave Gliders “Papa Mau” and “Benjamin” at the end of their long journey across the Pacific. UVS is working closely with Liquid Robotics to plan the completion phase of the Pacific Crossing which will finish near Brisbane, Australia. Using the Wave Glider Management System Papa Mau and Benjamin will be navigated through Australian coastal waters and recovered be the support team.
