Ed Lu highlighted the durablitiy of the Wave Gliders at TedX San Fransisco, saying: “They’ve gone through gale force winds and 20-foot waves and they’re still chugging along, sending their data,” while Dave Bailard noted that after 250,000 collective nautical miles in the ocean, not a single Wave Glider has been lost to date.
