International Summer School on Underwater Glider Technology06/08/2012
|During the second half of July 2012, the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands, PLOCAN, hosted the third edition of the Glider Summer School for two weeks on Gran Canaria. The event was attended by students, teachers, institutes and universities from several European countries as well as leading underwater glider and sensor manufacturers for ocean monitoring and data collection.|
The Chancellor of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, José Regidor, and PLOCAN’s director, Octavio Llinás, opened the event, the main goal of which was to provide a full overview and the operating basics of such specific unmanned underwater vehicles.
This edition was joined by a group of fourteen students from Portugal, Cape Verde, Sweden and Spain, with the collaboration and active participation of seventeen leading companies in the field of marine observation instruments (Teledyne Webb Research, i-Robot, Liquid Robotics, ACSA-Alcen, Bluefin Robotics, Teledyne RDI, Nortek, Contros, Rockland Scientific, Seabird Electronics, Turner Designs, Wetlabs, AADI, INNOVA Oceanografia Litoral, EMS, Grafinta and SIDMAR). The educational content included theoretical and practical sessions in lab and open waters of Gran Canaria.
Nowadays PLOCAN owns several underwater glider technologies that have been handled by students during the school as examples of the different options that market currently offers.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
