Slocum glider (G2) 402 Galileo


In December 2013 OGS acquired two Slocum 200m Glider (manufactured by Teledyne WEBB Research). This coastal glider can be operated to depths of 4–200 meters and can be deployed for a period of 15 to 30 days at a 600- to 1500-km range (powered with alkaline batteries). In spring 2015 OGS acquired also a 1000m forward section. It can be installed on one of the Slocum glider to increase the operational depth to 1000m.
