Video Title: Seaglider
Description: The animation is a 3D simulation of how the Seaglider maneuvers.

Cut-away views of the internal mechanics show how the Seaglider pitches, rolls, dives, ascends, and surfaces. These Seaglider animations demonstrate how the Seaglider moves through the ocean and communicate with satellites to transmit data and determine its global position. As the Seaglider dives and ascends its wings cause it to glide, allowing horizontal movement. Internal sensors monitor the depth, heading and attitude of the vehicle. External sensors are constantly scanning the ocean to determine water properties.
