This is a hybrid presentation and will also be available to viewers online via IMarEST TV.

The talk centres on long endurance autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), specifically the Teledyne Webb Slocum Glider – what it is and how it works.

Rob will also discuss how Blue Ocean MTS have developed their own piloting software to enable easier control of multiple gliders.

For any queries, please contact the Honorary Secretary of the branch.
