Abstract : This report covers work carried out under both the above ONR grant and a previous grant (N00014-05-1-0209) logically connected to the same program. This program concerned development of a computer control system for a very large underwater glider. In addition, APUUW partnered closely with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography who developed the vehicle hardware. A copy of the equivalent final report from Scripps is attached to this report as it covers work performed by both institutions in successful operation of the glider.
