Gliders are a rapidly maturing class of marine observing vehicles that offer long duration, some operate for several months at a time, autonomous ocean profiling in all weather conditions and sea states, to depths typically up to 1000 m. Gliders operate through using the profiling float principle of controlling buoyancy by pumping oil between reservoirs internal and external to their pressure hull; but unlike profiling floats they balance their buoyancy against lift on a pair of short wings, controlling their centre of gravity and therefore pitch and roll through the movement of weight, conveniently their battery packs, within the pressure hull. In this way glider vehicles glide through the water column, with horizontal and vertical speed components of around 25 cm s-1. Glider vehicles are typically just over one metre in length and as standard they will have a payload bay equipped with the generic triplet combination of conductivity, temperature and pressure sensors.
