This episode is the fourth and final episode of our special four-part series on “Silbo”, Teledyne Webb Research’s autonomous underwater glider that recently made the first ever circumnavigation of the Atlantic Ocean by an unmanned underwater vehicle. In this episode of Marine Tech Talk, we speak with Clayton Jones, Senior Director of Technology for Webb Research. Clayton discusses the Silbo mission, some of the significant achievements of the mission, and what those achievements mean to the community using unmanned vehicles for remote monitoring.
