Deployment of the Slocum glider
Arrived at the Cal Poly pier bright and early this morning. John Kerfoot (Rutgers) demonstrated how to program the Slocum glider and download mission files to the glider. Prior to launching the glider, we ran a status mission on the pier.
Thanks to the help of Jason Felton and Tom Moylan (Cal Poly) the glider was successfully loaded into the Zodiac and deployed by students in Avila Bay. After completing short abort sequence tests, the glider was sent on its way.
