What’s inside an Ocean Robot?

It takes a lot of parts to make an Ocean Robot fly in the ocean.  Rutgers glider pilots Dave and Nicole give you an inside tour of one of our underwater gliders.  They show you what the wings, rudder, computer, satellite phone, scientific instruments, and engine look like, both inside and out.  You also get to see how the buoyancy pump engine works, which allows gliders to fly all over the world.
