Abstract:

The objective of this specific project was to design and construct a new generation flying wing underwater glider, dubbed ZRay, based upon the experience developed over the past three years 2006-2008 of at-sea testing with XRay under ONR grant N00014-04-1-0558. The new design developed during this project includes several innovations that significantly improve a Liberdade gliders persistence, passive sensing capability, and robustness
