Wave Glider transmits real time weather data during Hurricane Sandy

November 1, 2012

One of Liquid Robotics’ Wave Gliders successfully piloted itself through Hurricane Sandy winds and transmitted weather data in real time.

The Wave Glider was in the region 100 miles off the coast of New Jersey. It’s sensors reported a plunge in barometric pressure to a low of 946 as it battled 70 knot winds.
It was on a scientific demo run for underwater acoustics company Sonardyne, Rutgers University and the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).
