Wave Glider Autonomous Surface Vehicles

Wave Glider - UVS Pty LtdBy continuously harvesting energy from the environment, Wave Gliders are able to travel long distances, hold station, and monitor vast areas without ever needing to refuel. A unique two-part architecture and wing system 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.

UVS 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 and sophisticated computers for navigation and payload control, with satellite communications systems, and with 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.
