This episode is the third in a 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 are joined by Joe Gradone, Former Customer Support Applications Engineer – Slocum Glider, Teledyne Webb Research. Joe discusses Silbo’s journey from St. Thomas back to Cape Cod. This was the final leg of the journey and covered just under a year (348 days) and 6236 km.
