Liquid Robotics – autonomous data data collecting surfboard robots via 2020.

Oceans cover most of Earth’s surface with an average depth of more than two miles. Placing observation equipment anywhere in this vast area is difficult and expensive, yet the oceans provide essential resources, influence climate, and enable human life to exist on land. Understanding them requires detailed observation. Liquid Robotics’ patented Wave Glider unmanned maritime vehicle* (UMV), which uses waves to propel itself, provides a new way to achieve this understanding.

By harvesting abundant natural energy, Wave Gliders provide a persistent ocean presence for commercial scientific and defense users. With a demonstrated endurance exceeding one year, Wave Gliders are now in service with a variety of customers and ongoing engineering development is regularly adapting the vehicle to new applications.
